Olympic runner Shelby Houlihan said she has been banned from the sport for four years following a positive test for anabolic steroids that she says was because she ate a pork burrito.

Shelby posted on her IG that she was devastated to learn of the test result saying a burrito she ate before the test contained pig organ meat, or offal, which she said can lead to a positive test for nandrolone.
