Breaking news: As a Ratified word record athlete star just got suspended due to…

Track medalist Mohamed Katir plans to appeal provisional suspension in whereabouts case.

Spain’s Mohamed Katir, the 2023 World 5000m silver medalist, said he is innocent and plans to appeal a provisional suspension over providing his location for drug-testing purposes.

Katir, 25, said in a statement that he was told Wednesday that he has been provisionally suspended for three whereabouts failures in the last 12 months.

Later Wednesday, the Athletics Integrity Unit, which handles anti-doping cases in track and field, confirmed Katir’s provisional suspension for whereabouts failures.

A suspension for whereabouts failures means any combination of three missed drug tests and/or filing failures in a 12-month period. A filing failure could mean incorrectly filling out forms to tell drug testers where an athlete can be found, or not submitting quarterly forms at all.

Provisional suspensions can be issued while awaiting a hearing on charges to determine a final sanction, if any.
