Athlete Diane Modhal has won another round in her fight with the British Athletic Federation over a drug slur. In 1994, a urine sample she had provided tested positive for prohibited drugs. Since then Modhal has been challenging the effectiveness of the sampling procedure used by the Portuguese laboratory which carried out the test and has launched legal action against the federation. In June 1996 the federation failed to have that action struck out, but when it appealed last year it won a partial victory and succeeded in having part of Modhal's claim dismissed. But now she has won the right to take her case to the House of Lords to challenge that ruling.
