(Iowa) -- Former Olympic runner Shelby Houlihan will be banned from facing for four years over accusations of using performance enhancing drugs.

The Sioux City native ran in the 2016 Olympics, but tested positive for a performance enhancing substance in her system just before the 2020 Olympic Trials. Houlihan appealed the ban, blaming the test results on food she had eaten.

Her appeal has been denied, and she'll now be allowed to return to racing at the beginning of 2025.
