Positive Doping Test Announced

The International SkyRunning Federation have announced that Christel Delwalle has been found to have tested positive at the 2016 SkyRunning World Championships. After taking victory in the Vertical Kilometer (VK) race, she was found to have tested positive for Heptaminol on 22nd July.

The full statement can be viewed below, but it does raise some questions. If testing positive for a banned substance at the pinnacle event of the sport only results in a 4 month ban, especially at a time where there is speculation of drug use at the elite level, does this act as a big enough deterrent?
