Asli Cakir Alptekin has agreed to be stripped of her Olympic and European 1,500-meters titles and receive an eight-year ban for anomalies in her biological passport, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said on Monday.

The 29-year-old Turkish athlete struck the deal as she had risked a life ban having been suspended for doping for two years in 2004.

Abnormal blood samples between July 2010 and October 2012 resulted in her being temporarily suspended in April 2013.
