7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

For­mer Bos­ton and Chicago marathon win­ner Rita Jep­too has had her dop­ing ban dou­bled to four years by the Court of Ar­bi­tra­tion for Sport. CAS said it up­held the IAAF’s ap­peal to in­crease Jep­too’s orig­i­nal two-year ban, which was to ex­pire this week. They said it was “ob­vi­ous” she used EPO as part of a scheme or plan with her doc­tor.
