Rebeca Gusmao Hit With Another Two-Year Doping Suspension

SAO PAULO, Brazil, July 24. THE hits just keep coming. On top of the positive doping tests for Max Jaben and Jessica Hardy, Rebeca Gusmao has now received another two-year doping suspension from a positive test for testosterone in 2006 according to the Canadian Press.

According to the report, "the ban comes just months after Gusmao was suspended for testing positive for the same substance before the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro. Gusmao, who is appealing the first suspension, could be banned from the sport if the current rulings stand."

Gusmao is also battling allegations stemming from the Pan American Games.
