MONACO (AP) — Moroccan runner Halima Hachlaf has been banned for six years for a second doping offense. Hachlaf tested positive for a synthetic steroid hormone at a race in Rabat in January. The Athletics Integrity Unit says she did not have an exemption to use it as a medicine. Hachlaf ran in the 800 meters at the 2012 London Olympics. She later served a four-year ban for suspected blood doping and returned to compete at the 2019 world championships in Qatar. The 33-year-old runner’s new ban expires in 2027.
