(AP) — USADA has suspended Kathy Jager for two years for testing positive for anabolic steroids at the masters track and field championships.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says the 68-year-old Jager's positive test occurred on July 29 at the event in Berea, Ohio.

The doping offense involved the use of a prescribed medication under the care of a physician, but without first seeking a therapeutic use exemption as required by the rules.

Jager, of Glendale, Ariz., accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, which began on Sept. 9, the day she accepted a provisional suspension.
