Kostas Kenteris and Katerina Thanou have received suspended sentences of 31 months.

The retired sprinters guilty of making false statements about an alleged motorcycle accident they had cited as the reason for missing drugs tests on the eve of the 2004 Olympics in the Greek capital.

On the day Kenteris and Thanou left hospital, police raided the premises of their coach and discovered 30 boxes of anabolic steroids and 1400 boxes of supplements containing the banned stimulant ephedrine.
