Positive Drug Tests Leave Turkish Athletes In Limbo, Jeopardizes Countries' 2020 Olympic Bid

OLYMPIC DAMAGE? In London, Rick Broadbent reported Turkey’s hopes of staging the 2020 Olympics "could be wrecked by the latest drugs sting to have left the country’s sporting reputation tattered and torn on the doping-room floor." Although Turkey "will not be thrown out" of next month’s World Athletics Championships, the Istanbul campaign "could be fatally weakened." If an inquiry is taking place while doping bans are being issued, Istanbul officials "will face some awkward questions." The vote will take place just weeks after the end of a World Championships already "blighted by the shadow of drugs" (LONDON TIMES, 7/10).
