Alsadik Mikhou Provisionally Suspended for Blood Doping during Tokyo games

International Testing Agency (ITA) has provisionally suspended Bahrain middle distance runner Alsadik Mikhou for receiving a blood transfusion during the Tokyo Olympic Games.

The Moroccan-born athlete competed in the men’s 1,500m heats last Tuesday, but failed to advance as he finished eighth in a time of 3:42.87.

The 21 year-old is the third athlete to fail a doping test at Tokyo 2020. Nigerian sprinter Blessing Okagbare and Kenyan 100m runner Mark Otieno Odhiambo were both previously suspended for drug violations.
