MONACO (AP) — The 10,000-meter champion at the African Games has been provisionally suspended in a doping case.
The Athletics Integrity Unit says Berehanu Tsegu of Ethiopia was notified that he is being investigated after testing positive for EPO, a banned endurance-boosting hormone.
Tsegu was 19 in August when he won the African Games title in Morocco. He placed third at the Copenhagen half marathon last month when a world record was set by Kenyan runner Geoffrey Kamworor.
The sport’s governing body currently ranks Tsegu at No. 5 in the world in road running and No. 19 in the 10,000.
