Fabiola Molina gets increased 6-month doping ban from CAS


The Court of Arbitration for Sport has ordered an increased six-month ban for 36-year-old Fabiola Molina, until April, after FINA appealed claiming that Brazilian authorities had treated her too leniently. Molina tested positive for Methylhexaneamine at the Brazilian trials for the 2011 World Championships last May, and was imposed a two-month ban from the Brazilian swimming federation, which cleared her to compete at the Pan-American Games last October in Guadalajara, where she won a bronze medal in the 4×100-meter medley. CAS has now ordered this to be increased to a six-month ban from December, less the two months she already served. Read The Washington Post
