The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - SPORT -

Joanna Blair, the 2016 Bri­tish javelin cham­pion, has been pro­vi­sion­ally suspended af­ter fail­ing a drugs test. The 31-year-old from Lu­ton rep­re­sented Great Bri­tain this sum­mer at the Euro­pean team cham­pi­onships in Lille but failed to qual­ify for the world cham­pi­onships in Lon­don. Blair threw a per­sonal best of 57.44 me­tres – three me­tres fur­ther than her pre­vi­ous best – to win her Bri­tish ti­tle, beat­ing 2008 Olympic bronze medal­list Goldie Sayers into sec­ond place.
