10-year ban for former athletics coach Harun Rasheed

Former national chief coach Harun Rasheed (pic) has been banned for 10 years by the Swiss-based Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) while six national sprinters who skipped doping tests in 2011 were given suspensions ranging from 18 months to two years.

Last Friday's decision by CAS overturned the one-year ban handed out by the Malaysian Athletics Federation (MAF) to Harun for telling the six athletes to skip the out-of-competition dope tests at the National Sports Institute on May 24, 2011.

Harun's ban is backdated to Sept 12, 2011 when the MAF first handed out its verdict, which the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) disagreed with and appealed to CAS for a tougher punishment.

  4. The next SEA Games is coming. Adamas is quiet. The athletes are taking part in many meets. The officials are giving interviews in Astro and media. What a farce

  5. Why is KJ keeping quiet. He seems to me more interested in FAM.

  6. MAF president Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad is reported to have said that the real victims in the episode are the athletes. I would respectfully disagree. The real victims in this episode are the people of Malaysia and the many fans of athletics in this country. This has brought huge shame to Malaysia.
