29-year-old Dazza has been tentatively graced with’atypical passport results’ since January but loses all results from May 4, 2019 to January 10, 2020 .. Arbitration of sports.
If the appeal is withheld, the titles of the 2019 Prague Marathon and the 2019 Fukuoka International Marathon will be lost, and in the latter case Taku Fujimoto will win. Fujimoto could not participate in the Olympic team in the December race.
