Masters athlete, 63, gets steroids ban

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A 63-year-old Masters track and field athlete has been suspended from competition for two years for testing positive for a doctor-prescribed steroid without a therapeutic-use exemption.

S. Craig Shumaker of Glenmoore, Pa., tested positive at the USA Masters Track & Field Championships in July in Berea, Ohio. He won the men's 60 shot put and was second in the discus for his age group.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said Friday those results will be forfeited.
