Athletics: Kelly Ann-Baptiste out because of doping, says Trinidad and Tobago federation
MOSCOW (AP) - The Trinidad and Tobago athletics federation says sprinter Kelly-Ann Baptiste is involved in a doping case and that is why she withdrew from the 100 metres at the ongoing world championships.
The 2011 bronze medallist had been scheduled to compete in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay, but she pulled out of the Sunday's 100 heats.
The federation says the withdrawal was "related to doping matters," adding that it was notified on Thursday by the IAAF of the case and said it was "premature and inappropriate" to comment further since the case is still being dealt with.
Baptiste set a national record of 10.83 seconds this year and was third in the season standings.
