Athletics: Sri Lanka’s Olympic sprinter retires
Posted: 05 February 2009 2248 hrs

COLOMBO: Sri Lankan sprinter Susanthika Jayasinghe announced her retirement on Thursday, the president’s office said.

Jayasinghe, 33, who won silver at the 2000 Sydney Olympics in the 200 metres, failed to qualify for the finals at 2008 Beijing Games.

« She announced her retirement to president (Mahinda) Rajapakse, during a ceremony today to felicitate her achievements, » an official at Rajapakse’s office said.

The president presented Jayasinghe with a five-million rupee (US$44,000) cheque as a token for her achievements.

Jayasinghe was not immediately available for comment.

Jayasinghe’s otherwise auspicious career was blighted by allegations of doping.

She was banned after testing positive for the steroid nandrolone in April 1998 but the suspension was lifted four months later.

Jayasinghe won a silver medal in her favourite 100-metre event and a bronze in 200 metres at the 2005 Doha Asian Games. – AFP/de
