Calgary acclaims rightful winners after doping disqualification

Calgary Marathon is acclaiming three local running heroes who didn’t stand in their rightful podium place last summer.

A ruling by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), disqualified the results of the top finisher, Emily Chepkorir. Chepkorir previously tested positive for Nandrolone (an anabolic steroid) at races in Guatemala on 26 January and Mexico on 02 March; all subsequent results are disqualified and she is ineligible to compete until 5 April 2016.

The top three women have been alerted and have been properly compensated for their outstanding race day efforts with the rightful prize money. Maria Zambrano, of Calgary, is awarded 1st place, Nadine Mueller second and Andrea Glover third. Calgary Marathon has adjusted the 2014 results and applauds the IAAF for its diligence in its efforts to identify, investigate and disqualify athletes who are using banned substances. “We can adjust results and prize money but we can never give the rightful winners their moments of glory” said Calgary Marathon Society Chair, Dan Ouimet.
