The Athletics Congress Tuesday issued a three-month suspension to California hurdler Tonie Campbell for failing to appear for a mandatory drug Test.
Campbell, 29, of Ontario, Calif., failed to appear after being randomly selected for drug testing at a meeting in Fairfax, Va., on Feb. 5, TAC said. His suspension was decided by a three-member TAC hearing panel on March 11 at Indianapolis.TAC said Campbell then had 30 days to appeal but failed to do so.
Campbell had cited fixed flight arrangements as the reason for not appearing for the drug testing, TAC said.
Campbell was last year's Olympic bronze medalist in the 110 meter hurdles and this year's U.S. indoor hurdles champion.
