South African, Lebogang Shange, has had his doping ban held up by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). He will not be competing in the Olympics due to a positive doping test for anabolic steroids.

The racewalker tested positive for trenbolone, a steroid used to promote muscle growth in cattle.

His ban will include the 2024 Olympics as well. Results will be annulled going back two years.

Shange is a 20K racewalk specialist and owns the national record of 1:19:18, which was set in 2017 at the London World Athletics Championships. He finished fourth in that race. He is a four-time national champion.
