    U.S. bobsledder and former track Olympian Ryan Bailey has been given a two-year doping suspension by the Court of Arbitration for Sport for using a banned stimulant.

    Bailey failed a doping test in January at a North American Cup competition in Park City, Utah. He was originally given a six-month ban starting in July, and then the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency took the case to CAS.

    After a hearing, CAS increased the ban to two years.

    Bailey was a strong candidate to make the U.S. team for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics. Bailey was on the team that won silver in the 4x100-meter relay at the 2012 London Games, a medal that was stripped after the doping conviction of relay teammate Tyson Gay.
