The Saudi anti-doping committee has issued a decision on Tuesday suspending spring Yousef Ahmed Masrahi from participating in national and international competitions for four years for doping.

In late July, the Saudi authorities said Masrahi will not compete in the Olympics after failing the drug test.

Masrahi set an Asian 400-meter record at the athletics world championships in Beijing last year.
