9 Turkish athletes banned for banned drug use
The IAAF said on Wednesday that six of the athletes are women, including two teenagers.
Six cases involved field athletes testing positive for stanozolol at Turkey's national university championships held in May at Bursa.
The IAAF said 17-year-old discus thrower Burcu Akmazolu tested positive for both banned drugs. She is suspended from competing through June 13, 2015.
A second teenager, 18-year-old hammer thrower Elif Akbas, also tested positive for stanozolol at the student event.
An IAAF list of sanctioned athletes shows that stanozolol and oral turinabol were both found in samples taken at Bursa from Kubra Danis, a 22-year-old shot putter, and Gokce Celenk, a 25-year-old discus thrower. Javelin throwers Sarik Bilgin, who is 25, and 21-year-old Gulsum Ozdemir Gunes also tested positive for stanozolol.
The IAAF said the other cases involve two field athletes and one runner testing positive for stanozolol, methandienone and oxandrolone, respectively.
