OMG, I thought you were kidding about the name. Can you test positive just because of your name? Is she married, or was she alway a "Pumper"?

She recently improved the Austrian half-marathon record to 72:21.

Interesting detail: she was caught because of "targeted testing". The head of her running club had heard rumours about her and specifically asked the organizers of the race where she was caught to have her tested.
I'd like to see that done more often.

P.S. Her coach is Dr. Helmut Stechemesser, who also coached Jolanda Ceplak, Theresia Kiesel and Stefanie Graf
