US’ Young gets four-year doping ban

Jason Young, a 2012 US Olympic discus thrower, was issued a four-year doping ban on Friday by the US Anti-Doping Agency for a non-analytical violation involving prohibited performance-enhancing substances.

The 35-year-old Texan, was suspended for using and having multiple growth hormone agents since January of 2013.

Young's four-year ban dates to November 17, 2016, when he admitted having and using the prohibited peptides.

In addition, Young was disqualified from all competitive results since January 24, 2013, including a 13th-place showing at the 2013 US nationals.

In 2012, Young finished third at the US Olympic trials and qualified for the London Olympics, where he finished a US-best 18th. He had been runner-up at the 2010 and 2011 US outdoor championships.
