Belgian sprinter Bangura provisionally suspended after positive doping result.

Belgian sprinter Fatmata Bangura will miss next weekend’s world indoor championships after she was provisionally suspended because of a positive doping test.

Sierra Leone-born Bangura was tested at her first Belgian championships last month and anti-doping officials found traces of the steroids clembuterol and stanozolol.

Belgian athletics official Tille Scheerlinck told Belgian media that the initial positive test triggered the suspension which will keep her from the three-day championships which open in Doha, Qatar, next Friday.

Bangura had only been approved by the IAAF to run for Belgium one week ago.
