Banned Ethiopian clear to compete
Robel Teklemariam
Robel Teklemariam moved to the USA when he was eight years old
Ethiopia's Robel Teklemariam has been cleared to compete in Turin, after his five-day suspension was lifted by the International Skiing Federation (FIS).

He was one of 12 athletes banned for high levels of haemoglobin, but a new blood test has given him the all clear.

Teklemariam, Ethiopia's first ever Winter Olympian, will take part in Friday's 15km, next Wednesday's sprint and the 50km on Saturday 25 February.

Canada's Sean Brooks was also cleared after a second blood test.
