12/4/2009 - Olympic Sports

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says cyclist Kenneth Williams has accepted a two-year suspension for using a steroid.

USADA said Thursday that a urine sample collected from Williams at the Masters National Championships on Aug. 21 tested positive for an anabolic agent and that Williams admitted knowingly taking a steroid.

The suspension is retroactive to Sept. 21.

USADA says Williams has been disqualified from all competitive results since July 27, when he allegedly used the anabolic agent.
