Mr Apti Aukhadov is a Russian Athlete competing in the Men’s 85 kg weightlifting event at the Londen 2012 Olympic Games.
In 2016, the IOC decided to perform further analyses on certain samples collected during the 2012 Olympic Games. These additional analyses were performed with analytical methods which were not available in 2012.
In May 2016 the International Olympic Committee (IOC) reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Athlete after his 2012 A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substances dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (turinabol) and drostanolone.
After notification the Athlete submitted that he was shocked and he did not accept the test results. The Athlete did not file a statement in his defence nor did he attend the hearing of the IOC Disciplinary Commission.
Based on the test results the Disciplinary Commission finds that the Athlete has committed an anti-doping rule violation pursuant to the Rules.
Therefore the IOC Disciplinary Commission decides on 12 October 2016 that the Athlete Apti Aukhadov:
1.) is found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation pursuant to the IOC Anti-Doping Rules applicable to the Games of the XXX Olympiad in London in 2012 (presence, and/or use, of Prohibited Substances or its Metabolites or Markers in an athlete’s bodily specimen),
2.) is disqualified from the event in which he participated upon the occasion of the Olympic Games London 2012, namely the Men’s 85kg weightlifting event, in which he ranked 2nd and for which he was awarded the silver medal.
3.) has the medal, the medalist pin and the diploma obtained in the Men’s 85 kg weightlifting event withdrawn and is ordered to return the same.
4.) The IWF is requested to modify the results of the above-mentioned event accordingly and to consider any further action within its own competence.
5.) The Russian Olympic Committee shall ensure full implementation of this decision.
6.) The Russian Olympic Committee shall notably secure the return to the IOC, as soon as possible, of the medal, the medallist pin and the diploma awarded in connection with the Men’s 85kg weightlifting event to the Athlete.
7.) This decision enters into force immediately.
