Court Rejects Krabbe

A German court rejected an attempt by banned sprinter Katrin Krabbe to win a temporary injunction enabling her to run at regional indoor championships later this month.


The district court in the eastern town of Neubrandenburg, home of Krabbe's athletics club, turned down her plea Tuesday out of consideration for other athletes planning to compete in the Jan. 22 event in the port city of Rostock.


Under rules of the International Amateur Athletic Federation any athlete competing against a banned athlete is automatically suspended for the same period.
