CAS imposes 2-year ban on German swimmer Schoeber.

German swimmer Sonja Schoeber has had her ban for testing positive for testosterone doubled to two years by sport’s highest court.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport imposed the ban Thursday in upholding an appeal from Germany’s national anti-doping agency after the country’s national swimming federation had suspended Schoeber for only a year.

Schoeber says her two positive tests, in August and October 2009, came from tainted food supplements. But NADA argued that the former German 100-meter breaststroke champion could not prove her unintentional negligence.
