Alptekin gets eight-year ban for doping

LAUSANNE, Switzerland - Olympic champion Asli Cakir Alptekin of Turkey has agreed to give up her 1,500-meter title and serve an eight-year ban for blood doping.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) says it approved a settlement agreed to by Alptekin and the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

CAS says Alptekin has forfeited all her results from July 29, 2010, including the 2012 Olympic gold and her 2012 European Championship title.

CAS says the IAAF charge that Alptekin manipulated her blood between July 29, 2010, and Oct. 17, 2012, “is upheld by default.’’

Alptekin was investigated based on abnormal blood values in her biological passport.
