Decaux fails drug test


French hurdler Alice Decaux has been provisionally suspended after testing positive for a banned substance.

The 28 year old, who finished second in the 100m hurdles at the French championships, was notified of the positive reading three weeks ago, and was excluded from the French team ahead of the World Championships which get underway in Moscow on Saturday.

Decaux, who came fourth in the Gateshead 100m hurdles in an impressive time of 12.94 seconds, now faces a two-year ban.
