Elmar Lichtenegger

Elmar Lichtenegger (born 25 May 1974 in Klagenfurt) is an Austrian hurdler.

His personal best time is 13.33 seconds, achieved in June 1999 in Athens.

Since 2003 he has been a member of the National Council of Austria, originally for the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ). In 2006 he joined the Alliance for the Future of Austria (BZÖ).

On 27 August 2008 Lichtenegger received a lifetime ban from international athletics competition due to his second positive test for the banned substance nandrolone.[1] Since he had announced his retirement the previous year, he did not contest the results of the test or the ban itself. He did, however, cite tainted nutrition supplements after the results of both tests were discovered.
