Former world champ Santos banned for doping

Former world champ Santos banned for doping

Former world champion gymnast Daiane dos Santos has been banned for five months for a doping offense.
The International Gymnastics Federation said Friday that the 26-year-old Brazilian's suspension took effect on Wednesday, when its presidential commission made its ruling.
Santos tested positive for the banned drug Furosemide at an out-of-competition doping control last July.
Furosemide is a weight-loss drug that can be used to mask the presence of other banned substances.
Santos won the floor routine gold medal at the 2003 World Championships and at two World Cup Final meets.
She competed at the 2004 Athens Olympics and 2008 Beijing Olympics but did not win a medal.
