Bulgaria said it will impose its own sanctions on Lydmila Andonova, world record-holder in the women's high jump, even though she has already been penalized by the International Amateur Athletic Federation for amphetamine use during the summer.

The IAAF has suspended Andonova for life from international competition, but she is eligible to appeal after 18 months. The Bulgarian federation ruled that she could not compete domestically for at least 18 months after it found that she used amphetamines July 19 in a meet at London.
