From The Grio — COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Relay sprinter Debbie Dunn has withdrawn from the U.S. Olympic team after testing positive for excessive testosterone.

Dunn, who finished fourth in the 400 meters at Olympic trials, was selected for the American relay pool. She is the 2010 world indoor champion at 400 meters.

In a statement Friday, she acknowledged a positive doping test and said she was withdrawing from the Olympics while the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency resolves the case.

USADA CEO Travis Tygart said the agency is analyzing Dunn’s ’B’ sample, and that “USADA appreciates Ms. Dunn voluntarily removing herself” from the team while the case is pending.

  1. Wow this is tough… I don’t know the details but all of those years of training may be jeopardized from taking an illegal supplement. I hope this gets worked out and she is able to run. Wishing her and her family the best.

  2. quite common. Most of the best runners are using something illegal.

    Keep in mind, there are drugs out there that can’t be tested for. So this list is incomplete.

  3. This is the problem with track, baseball and cycling but in football it’s okay for them to be juiced. I don’t get it

  4. SMH… Here we go again! I hope she gets it together.
