Italy bobsledder Frullani could face 1-year ban

MILAN (AP) Italian sport's anti-doping office has asked for bobsledder William Frullani to be banned for a year after failing a doping test at the Sochi Olympics.

Frullani tested positive for the banned stimulant dimetylpentylamine on Feb. 18 and the Italian was kicked out of Sochi.

The case goes to the second level of the Italian Olympic committee's anti-doping tribunal.

The 34-year-old Frullani was a five-time national champion in the decathlon and heptathlon before turning to the bobsled.
