One of the top athletics coaches in the United States was banned the last night for a series of doping rules violations while some of his athletes are still competing at World Athletics Championships in Doha.

Today Salazar's coaches' accreditation was removed by the US Track and Field federation.

“USATF has taken the steps necessary to have Mr. Salazar’s IAAF World Championships accreditation deactivated,” the federation said in a statement.

Salazar's athlete Sifan Hassan three nights ago won 10000m gold, she will line up tomorrow at 1500m prelims. American Clayton Murphy another Salazar's athlete is running on Tuesday the men's 800m final. Konstanze Klosterhalfen, a German long-distance runner coached by the American is running 5000m heats later this week.
