Yousef MASRAHI - Saudi Arabia - 7th. in 400m at 2013 World Championships.

After finishing second in his heat of the Men's 400 metres in Moscow Yousef Masrahi

set a new Saudi record of 44.61 when he won the second semi final,

from Tony McQuay (44.66). Though he also beat the 45 second barrier

in the Final, the first four ran either personal or seasonal best times. None the less

he got the better of the defending Champion Kirani James.

He was banned from competition for four years, starting 15 June 2016,

prior to the 2016 Rio Olympics due to a failed drug test.
