October 18, 2019

Ms. Anna Nazarova is a Russian Athlete competing in the Women’s Long Jump Athletics event at the London 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 April 2017 the International Olympic Committee reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Athlete after her 2012 sample tested positive for the prohibited substance dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (turinabol).
After notification the Athlete failed to respond.

The IOC Disciplinary Commission finds that the Athlete has been duly notified and with the positive test results the Commission concludes that the Athlete has committed an anti-doping rule violation consistent with the intentional use of a prohibited substance specifically ingested to deliberately improve performance. The fact that the metabolites of said doping substance, which is a “classical” doping substance was found, supports this consideration.

Therefore the IOC Disciplinary Commission decides on 16 October 2017 that the Athlete Anna Nazarova:

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 she participated upon the occasion of the Olympic Games London 2012, namely the Women’s long jump event, in which she ranked 5th and for which she was awarded a diploma,
3.) has the diploma obtained in the Women’s long jump event withdrawn and is ordered to return the same.
4.) The IAAF 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 diploma awarded in connection with the Women’s long jump event to the Athlete.
7.) This decision enters into force immediately.
