Shawn Crawford, the 2004 Olympic 200m gold medallist, has been banned for two years for failing to give anti-doping officials his whereabouts for testing, the US Anti-Doping Agency said Thursday.

The 35-year-old Californian was part of the USADA National Testing Pool from 2001 through the beginning of 2013, and was required to provide his whereabouts for out-of-competition testing, but failed to do so three times in an 18-month span, USADA said.
