ZURICH (Reuters) - The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Tuesday banned Russian track and field athletes Tatyana Chernova, Ekaterina Sharmina and Kristina Ugarova from participating in sport over the results of their doping tests.

"All three athletes have been found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation ... of the International Athletics Federation (IAAF) Competition Rules after analysis of their Athlete Biological Passports (ABP) showed evidence of blood doping," CAS said in a statement.
