Moroccan Suspended From Olympic Games for Positive Drug Test

Moroccan 1500-meter runner Alaoui Selsouli will be suspended from the Olympics after testing positive for a banned diuretic, the International Association of Athletics Federations said today.

Selsouli waived her right to have her back-up sample tested, the IAAF said in an e-mailed statement, meaning she’ll be suspended for all competitions. She can request a hearing by the national athletic federation within the next 3 months, the IAAF said.
