The International Association of Athletics Federations says it has barred Russian runner TatyanaAndrianova for doping in a case that is more than 10 years old.

Andrianova tested positive for the banned steroid stanozolol while competing in the 800 metres at the 2005 world championships in Finland, where she won bronze.

That medal is likely to pass to fourth-place finisher Maria Mutola of Mozambique.

Andrianova's ban comes at a time when Russia is suspended from athletics over accusations of running a state-sponsored doping program.

In August, the IAAF said it identified 28 athletes suspected of doping at the 2005 and 2007 worlds after retesting their samples using new technology.

The 28 have not been named, and it is not clear whether Andrianova is among them, or is a separate case.
