LONDON - Spanish tennis player Nuria Llagostera Vives has been banned for two years under anti-doping rules, the International Tennis Federation announced Monday. The 33-year-old tested positive for d-methamphetamine at the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford earlier this year. “An independent hearing was held, in which Ms Llagostera Vives was not able to demonstrate how the d-amphetamine entered her system,” an ITF statement said. “She was, therefore, unable to satisfy the preconditions for mitigation. “Ms Llagostera Vives’s commission of an Anti-Doping Rule Violation was, therefore, confirmed and it was determined that she is suspended from participation for a period of two years, commencing from 8 September 2013, the date on which she was provisionally suspended.”–AFP
