Feb. 07, 2018
LONDON (AP) — British 400-meter runner Nigel Levine has been provisionally suspended for failing a doping test.
UK Athletics said Wednesday that 28-year-old Levine had a prohibited substance in a sample. No more details were given.
Levine won a gold medal in the 4x400 relay at the European Championship in 2013 and has won multiple medals in world and European indoor championships.
He sustained serious injuries in a motorcycle accident during a training camp in Tenerife in January 2017.
UK Athletics said Levine has the opportunity to respond to the doping suspension and the right to a full hearing.
