MOSCOW (AP) The Russian Anti-Doping Agency says six track and field athletes have been banned for various doping offenses.

The agency did not say why they were banned.

Middle-distance runner Olesya Syreva, who previously served a two-year suspension in 2013 and lost a silver medal from the 2011 European indoor championships, was given an eight-year ban. The ban is likely to end the 32-year-old Syreva's career.

Also banned is triple jumper Valeria Fyodorova, who competed at the world junior championships in 2014, and four national-level athletes, Yulia Zaripova, Elvira Abdrakhmanova, Vadim Vrublevsky and Yuri Bishaev.

Zaripova is a discus thrower, but has the same name as the Olympic champion runner.
