Baala and Mekhissi cleared for worlds despite fight

5th August 2011

PARIS (Reuters) - Medhi Baala and Mahiedine Mekhissi Benabbad will be able to run at the world championships later this month despite fighting with each other at a Diamond League meeting in Monaco in July, the French Athletics Federation said Thursday.

The pair, who spectacularly came to blows at the end of the 1,500 metres following a row, have however been given subsequent 10-month bans from racing outside of France with five months suspended.

The worlds in Daegu, South Korea, run from August 27 to September 4.

The French athletes must also pay 1,500 euro (1,300 British pounds) fines each and do 50 hours of community service after the outcome of a federation hearing Thursday.
