STATUS QUO — December

Here’s the latest in the aches, pains & eligibility departments:

As a soph, back in ’17, Tyrese Cooper was the No. 1 prep 200 runner in the country. He’s going to begin his collegiate career at a 2-year school. (KIM SPIR)

World/Olympic long jump champ Tianna Bartoletta had surgery to remove a fibroid tumor in her uterus, discovered while tracking down the cause of persistent anemia. She expects to compete at a few indoor meets this winter.

Former Florida prep sprint sensation Tyrese Cooper was originally thought to be headed to Oregon, but has reportedly enrolled at Hinds JC.

Heptathlete Alex Gochenour, ranked No. 2 in the U.S. in ’18, has been given a 4-year ban after testing positive for ostarine, an anabolic agent, at that year’s USATF meet.

Oft-injured Emily Infeld is taking a short break from training to recover from tendinosis and tendinitis.

Olympic triathlon gold medalist Gwen Jorgensen has abandoned her plans of competing in the Tokyo 2020 marathon because she isn’t at the right point in her training after surgery last May. Instead she will try to make the team in the 5000/10,000.

’17 world marathon champ Geoffrey Kirui of Kenya has resumed light training following an injury. He hopes to compete in Tokyo.

Eliza McCartney says her doctors think she may have a genetic condition that causes ongoing inflammation problems. “Micro trauma causes my immune system to go into overdrive and set off an inflammatory process in the affected areas,” the Kiwi vaulter said on Instagram.

Germany’s former world champion David Storl, whose shot season was truncated this year by back problems, has returned to training but is unsure when he will be able to compete again.


Doping Suspensions:

4 years—Clemence Calvin (France, marathon), Sarah Chepchirchir (Kenya, marathon), Alex Gochenour (U.S., heptathlete), Yuliya Gushchina (Russia, sprints), Abderrahmane Kachir (Morocco, distance);
2 years—Olha Korsun (Ukraine, triple jump), Anna Nazarova (Russia, long jump);
1 year—Igor Obraztsov (Russia, sprints). □
