LINCOLNSHIRE sprinter Bernice Wilson has been banned from sport for four years after losing an appeal to overturn a ban for a failed drugs test.

27-year-old Wilson failed the test in June and will now be banned until July 2015 after her appeal was overturned by an independent National Anti-Doping Panel.

The panel described it as a ‘very bad case of doping’ and said that ‘far from admitting her guilt... she sought to blame other people’.
