Discus champ facing drugs ban
European discus champion Sandra Perkovic failed a drugs test last month and is waiting to find out how long she will be suspended for.
Croatian athletics officials claim that the 21-year-old took the drug accidentally, however, and are lobbying for the IAAF to take a lenient view.
"Perkovic inadvertently took a food additive that contained a psycho stimulant Methylhexanamine and she failed doping tests at the Diamond League meetings in Rome and Shanghai. I suppose she will be suspended for up to six months," president of the Croatian Athletics Federation Luciano Susanj said.
