British weightlifter gets two-year ban for steroids use

A BRITISH weightlifter has been banned for two years after testing positive for anabolic steroids.

Daniel Maloney failed an in-competition test at the British Weightlifting Association (BWLA) Northern Open on November 24.

Maloney tested positive for four steroids and UK Anti-Doping chief executive Andy Parkinson said: "To test positive for multiple anabolic steroids is a serious breach of the anti-doping rules and Mr Maloney has been given the maximum penalty under the circumstances."
