Machura gets two-year ban for doping
Prague – Czech shot-putter Remigius Machura was handed a two-year doping ban after testing positive for a growth hormone, which will rule him out of the 2012 London Olympics.
“Remigius Machura junior has been suspended for two years, from August 12, 2010 until August 11, 2012,” said Miroslav Sevcik, the head of the Czech athletics federation's disciplinary body.
