The Eurovets site and World Masters Athletics report: “Polish masters athlete Wieslaw Pietka has been found guilty of an anti-doping rule violation after testing positive during the European Veterans Championships Stadia in Zittau, Zgorzelec and Hradek on 23rd August 2012. In conformity with the disciplinary decision of 17th January 2013, the Polish Athletics Federation (PZLA) has suspended the athlete for a period of two years, from August 23, 2012, until August 22, 2014. The results of 23rd August 2012 are consequently also disqualified.” According to results still posted, Wieslaw won the 5K and 3K steeplechase in 15:12.78 and 9:37.09, respectively. Not sure what they found in his system. I’m checking it out.
