British weightlifter gets two-year ban for steroids use
A BRITISH weightlifter has been banned for two years after testing positive for anabolic steroids. Daniel Maloney failed an in-competition test at the British Weightlifting Association (BWLA) Northern Open on November 24. Maloney tested positive for four steroids and UK Anti-Doping chief executive Andy Parkinson said: “To test positive for multiple anabolic steroids is a serious breach of the anti-doping rules and Mr Maloney has been given the maximum penalty under the circumstances.” http://www.independent.ie/sport/other-sports/british-weightlifter-gets-twoyear-ban-for-steroids-use-29152320.html
