IAAF bans Moroccan marathon runner for two years


The IAAF has revealed that the two-time Olympic runner Abderrahime Bouramdane of Morocco has been hit with a two-year ban for doping.

The 37-year-old’s ban will run until Oct. 1, 2017, after it was discovered that his biological passport contained some irregularities.

The ban also means that any results Bouramdane has achieved since 14 April 2011 have been stripped from his record. It is worth noting that the Moroccan finished in fourth place at the 2011 world championships in Daegu, South Korea.

Bouramdane finished as runner-up at the Boston in 2012, but failed to complete the Olympic in the same year.
