Johaug dope ban extended

NORWEGIAN cross-country skier Therese Johaug’s doping ban has been extended by five months, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said yesterday, dashing her hopes of competing in the Olympic Games next February. The ban, extended to 18 months, will expire in April 2018, CAS said. Norway’s Olympic Committee originally banned Johaug for 13 months after she tested positive for clostebol, an anabolic steroid, last September, but the International Skiing Federation called for an extension. Johaug won the gold medal in the 4x5km relay at the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.
