Athletics: RICHARDSON BAN AXED.
The British 400 metres runner tested positive for nandrolone in October 1999 and missed the Sydney Olympics as a result.
But the International Amateur Athletic Federation reinstated him under their "exceptional circumstance" rule.
Richardson, 28, said: "I'm delighted, the IAAF has given me my dignity and integrity back. Now I can get on with my athletics career."
Richardson, bronze medallist in the 1998 European Championships, protested his innocence, blaming a contaminated nutritional supplement.
FORMER world junior champion Christian Malcolm proved himself the hottest sprint property in Europe last night with a brilliant double victory in Helsinki. He won the 100m in 10.17secs and then he took the 200m in 20.40secs.
