British sprinter Nigel Levine suspended for 4 years after failing the drugs test

Nigel Levine, an elite athlete, who has competed at the Olympic Games, European and World Championships was provisionally suspended in February when found to have tested positive for the asthma drug clenbuterol.

Widely used to treat asthma, and other breathing disorders, clenbuterol has also been abused by athletes and bodybuilders to burn fat and boost aerobic capacity, hence its place on the World Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited list.

Levine was charged with an ADRV pursuant to Article 2.1 of the Anti-Doping Rules – “Presence of a Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers in an Athlete’s Sample"

UKAD stated that Levine’s ban will be backdated to December 13 2017 and run until December 12 2021.
