Great Britain’s cross country runner, Luke Traynor has been slapped a four year ban from UK sport after testing positive for cocaine. The ban was meted to him by the UK Athletics Anti-Doping organization.

Traynor , through a twitter post,  expressed his remorse for the offense where he said he made an “incredibly stupid and uncharacterstic mistake and for that I am deeply sorry. I am sorry to my family, friends, coaches, sponsors, and anybody who has supported my progress at any stage of my career”
