Italy seeks to lengthen Er­rani’s ban

Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

ROME — Italy’s anti-dop­ing agency is ap­peal­ing to lengthen the two-month ban handed to for­mer French Open fi­nal­ist Sara Er­rani.

NADO Italia — which op­er­ates in­de­pen­dently from the Ital­ian Olympic Com­mit­tee — filed a “state­ment of ap­peal” with the Switzer­land-based Court of Ar­bi­tra­tion for Sport, with­out spec­i­fy­ing how long of a ban it is seek­ing.

Er­rani blamed food con­tam­i­na­tion from her mother’s breast can­cer med­i­ca­tion after test­ing pos­i­tive for the banned sub­stance letro­zole in a test taken in Fe­bru­ary. Er­rani’s ban ex­pires on Oct. 2.
