China bans 3 after dope test cheating

BEIJING — The Chinese Athletic Association has banned a provincial coach and two athletes for cheating on a doping test.

A statement posted on the association’s Web site said coach Zhu Lidong asked sprinter Teng Haina to take a drug test in place of her teammate Ha Xianpin in July.

All are from a provincial athletics team from the northern province of Heilongjiang.

When officials compared photos of the athletes, they discovered the switch, and when they questioned Teng, she gave a false name, Zhao Jian, vice director of China’s anti-doping center, told the state-run Xinhua News Agency.

Zhu and Teng were each banned for four years and fined $2,900, the statement said. Ha received a one-year ban and a $730 fine.

Put together by a member of the World-Track and Field Website team members. This is usually done by an in house member with able assistance from someone or an agency reporting from outside.
