Simone Alves da Silva

Simone Alves da Silva of Brazil was hoping to represent her country when the Olympics came to Rio in 2016. But after failing her second drug test, the record-breaking long-distance runner was given a five-year ban by the IAAF in March 2011. She will not be able to compete again until October 2016. Silva was first banned from December 2010 to February 2011 for using the stimulant oxilofrine. (Photo: WikiCommons)
