Debbie Dunn, a standout track and field alumna of Norfolk State University, has tested positive for steroids just weeks before representing the United States in the 4×400 meter relay team at the 2012 Olympic Games. Dunn has withdrawn from the Olympic team, and awaits a decision from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
“I have been informed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that a sample I gave at the U.S. Olympic Trials contains an elevated testosterone/epitestosterone level,” Dunn said. “While I work with USADA to resolve this matter, I am withdrawing from my relay pool position for the 2012 Olympic Games. I do not want any issue like this to distract from my teammates’ focus for the biggest meet of their lives. I wish Team USA best in London as I work toward resolving this matter.”
