LAUSANNE, Switzerland, May 23. FINA recently announced that Kazakhstan's Ksenia Atamanskaya has been suspended for two years after testing positive for Fenoterol.
Fenoterol is an asthmatic medication that is banned by FINA as a Class S3 Beta-2 Agonist. The medication is designed to open the pathways to the lungs.
The test occurred at the Kazakhstan Open Swimming Championships in 2011. Kazakhstan's national federation has imposed a sanction of two years, beginning on May 10, 2011.
