Wondemagegn, who reached the 3,000-meter steeplechase final at the Tokyo Olympics, and narrowly missed the world championship podium last year, has been banned for five years for doping after testing positive for two banned substances. Wondemagegn admitted breaking anti-doping rules after samples she gave flagged up traces of testosterone and another substance, EPO, which can help athletes’ blood transport more oxygen, an Athletics Integrity Unit ruling published Monday, April 22, 2024, said.
