KATRIN KRABBE, Germany's double world sprint champion, is planning to fight the proposed four-year ban for alleged drug abuse. Her lawyer, Peter Wossner, said in Bonn yesterday that Krabbe and her team-mate, Grit Breuer, would challenge suspensions recommended after they tested positive for clenbuterol during random tests in July. 'We will be arguing that the ban be reduced on the scientific argument that clenbuterol cannot be regarded as an anabolic steroid,' Wossner said.
