MONACO (AP) - Track and field's governing body says Colombian runner Diego Palomeque has been suspended for two years after failing a drug test at the London Olympics.
Diego Palomeque had a positive testosterone reading in an out-of-competition test in the Olympic Village on July 26 and was barred from the 400-meter heats.
In releasing its latest list of doping cases Tuesday, the IAAF said Palomeque is banned until Aug. 8, 2014.
During the London Games, the IOC also asked Colombia's Olympic committee to investigate Palomeque's coach, Raul Diaz Quejada, regarding injections given to the runner.
