World 100-meter champion Christian Coleman will miss next year's Tokyo Olympics after receiving a two-year ban Tuesday from the Athletics Integrity Unit.
The AIU had provisionally suspended the 24-year-old American sprinter in June for evading anti-doping inspectors.
"The Disciplinary Tribunal has upheld the AIU's charge and banned sprinter Christian Coleman of the USA for 2 years for 3 Whereabouts Failures in a 12-month period, a violation of the @worldathletics Anti-Doping Rules," the AIU posted on Twitter.
Coleman won gold medals in the 100 and the 4x100 relay at the 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships held in Doha, Qatar.
