IOC 2016 IOC vs Ivan Yushkov

Mr. Ivan Yushkov is a Russian Athlete competing the short put Athletics event in the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

In 2016, the IOC decided to perform further analyses on certain samples collected during the 2008 Olympic Games. These additional analyses were performed with analytical methods which were not available in 2008.

In May 2016 the International Olympic Committee reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Athlete after his 2008 A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substances stanozolol, oxandrolone and dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (turinabol).

After notification the Athlete failed to respond. The Russian Olympic Committee submitted that the presence of the Prohibited Substances had been been established and asked the IOC Disciplinary Commission to issue its decision accordingly.

With the positive test results the IOC Disciplinary Commission finds that the Athlete has committed an anti-doping rule violation and decides on 15 August 2016 that the Athlete Ivan Yushkov:

1.) is found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation pursuant to the IOC Anti-Doping Rules applicable to the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing in 2008 (presence and/or use, of a Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers in an athlete’s bodily specimen),
2.) is disqualified from the shot put event in which he participated upon the occasion of the Olympic Games Beijing 2008.
3.) The IAAF is requested to modify the results of the above-mentioned events accordingly and to consider any further action within its own competence.
4.) The Russian Olympic Committee shall ensure full implementation of this decision.
5.) This decision enters into force immediately.
