  • Belarus Medalists positive? [yes, says IOC] [no, says CAS]

    Can any Russian speakers please confirm the content of the article on the front page of the Allsport website (http://www.allsport.ru) ??

    Some people have pointed me there indicating that the silver and bronze medalists from Beijing have tested positve

    I Hope so..would mean Koji gets Bronze

    Thanks

    Can't translate the Russian version, but it's also on the official site of the DLV now. They are usually hesitant to post such news, however if they do, you can almost be sure that this is true.

      Then Devyatovskiy would get a lifetime ban because it'll be his second positive drugs test.

        Yep. Affirmative on both counts - the positive and the life-time ban.

          thank you

          It constantly amazes me that Olympic level athletes (especially medalists) would be silly enough to test positive actually at the games themselves. I guess you get the dose/cycle mixed up, but surely you give yourself a decent buffer zone...

            It's strange the testing took such a long time. Blonska's positive was announced just a couple of days after the competition, but the HT final was 17 days ago.

              The substance was apparently testosterone (according to the DLV site). That may have made the analysis a little more time-consuming.

                This totally discredits BLR's performances IMO, the same way Sobeleva and co's did with Russia.

                  Delighted by this news.... and completely agree with Brettboy, I certainly suspect its a state run regime!!!

                    Swoosher i am no expert at all but i guess the drop in performance when you come off the cycle is fairly rapid, which is why they cut it so fine (and why the hungarians were using the fake penis)!!!!

                      Both are coached by Litvinov, according to the Russian article.

                        I'm not sure if it's been mentioned but the Belarussian SP no.3 Yulia Leantsiuk tested positive and so did their no.1 steeplechaser.

                          It does not help the Belorussian throwing team as a whole that they behaved so unusually in the buildup to the games, arriving in Beijing the PM before qualifying for the men's shot the following AM.

                          Makes me even happier that VV took the gold!

                            That would be the one who was throwing 17.00 consistently indoors and then peppered the 20m line outdoors in Belarus. Hmmmmm.

                              The two names affects recent championship results (well, unofficially anyway) in similar way as the Russian 1500 meter runners did. It's basically a joke:
