World Athletics v Abeba-Tekulu Gebremeskel

A decision in the case of World Athletics against Abeba-Tekulu Gebremeskel has been issued by the Disciplinary Tribunal.

On 22 February 2021, the Athlete was charged by the AIU with an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) in connection with alleged abnormalities in the haematological module of her Athlete Biological Passport ("ABP") revealed between 30 November 2019 and 31 July 2020. 

The Disciplinary Tribunal comprised of Anna Smirnova (Chair), Dennis Koolaard and Patrick Grandjean determined that an Anti-Doping Rule Violation had been established pursuant to Article 2.2 and as a result, a four-year period of Ineligibility was applicable. Ms Gebremeskel's competition results between 30 November 2019 until the date of her Provisional Suspension on 22 February 2021, shall be disqualified.
