  Doping Cases Of Three Weightlifters To Be Probed By COC

The Chinese Olympic Committee (COC) reiterated its zero tolerance to doping and vowed to investigate the cases of three Chinese weightlifters after they were stripped of gold medals won during 2008 Olympic Games.

On Thursday, it was announced by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that three female Chinese Olympic weightlifting gold medalists Cao Lei (75 kilograms), Chen Xiexia (48 kilograms) and Liu Chunhong (69 kilograms) were among five other athletes who competed at 2008 and 2012 Summer Games. The three Olympic weightlifters all tested positive for prohibited substance Growth hormone-releasing peptide 2 and metabolite (GHRP-2 M2) after re-analysis of their samples from Beijing 2008. Liu also tested positive for Sibutramine. The disqualification leaves China facing a potential ban on weightlifting from international competitions for a period of one year.

A Chinese anti-doping expert said production of growth hormones is stimulated by the drug taken by the athletes. The expert added Sibutramine was possibly used as a masking agent. The Chinese anti-doping expert went on to criticize several Western media that accused the country of state-sponsored doping. The expert remarked they are just analyzing cases with “double standard.” He said there are also many athletes from Western countries who were found using prohibited substances in recent years, but the global media usually tries to paint their indiscretions as personal mistake but the issue becomes ‘nationally organized behavior’ when it comes to countries like China, which is a double standard.

In a statement published on its official website, the Chinese Olympic Committee said it condemns the three athletes who violated the spirit of sportsmanship and Olympics for doping. It further said that the Chinese Olympic Committee respects the decisions made by the IOC and will investigate the cases with related bodies and added we are in solidarity with the International Olympic Committee to protect clean athletes and fight against doping.

The list of other suspended athletes included Belarus shot-putter Nadzeya Ostapchuk, who was the bronze medalist in Beijing but tested positive for the steroid Turinabol. Turinabol, also called T-bol, is the androgenic anabolic steroid that bagged newspaper headlines after the East German doping scandal became public. This steroid has a positive effect on nitrogen retention and protein synthesis.

Belarusian hammer thrower Darya Pchelnik lost her fourth spot from the 2008 Games. Sibel Simsek of Turkey, Intigam Zairov of Azerbaijan and Armenia’s Norayr Vardanya — three non-medal weightlifters from the 2012 Olympics in London — were also disqualified.

The International Olympic Committee is reanalyzing 1,243 samples from Beijing and London using testing techniques not available at the time.

The results of the new tests will feature during discussions in April this year to map out the program of future summer Olympics. Weightlifting accounts for the most positive tests followed by athletics, wrestling, and cycling. IOC president Thomas Bach recently said that we will have to look at the results in detail, connect each sport with each country and see if it is a problem specific to each country. Bach added then we will study the situation with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

  UCI President Slams IOC For Being “In Denial” Over Doping

Brian Cookson, president of the Union Cycliste Internationale, has remarked Olympic sports remain in denial and not doing anywhere near enough about their doping problems unlike cycling that had at least confronted its drug-infested past.

The UCI President also remarked it is a ticking time bomb he thinks will inevitably explode. Cookson remarked cycling has come a long way to come clean and added the sport is well down the road to redemption and recovery that places it ahead of deluded sports resisting that difficult route.

Cookson also remarked he has often said that there are two groups of sports: sports that have a doping problem and are doing something about it – and he believe we are in amongst the leaders in those – and sports that have a doping problem and are in denial and are not doing anywhere near enough about it. The UCI chief also added he thinks those sports, sooner or later, which are in denial and haven’t done enough are going to have – and perhaps are already having – the sorts of problems that we had.

The reputation of road cycling and the sport’s world governing body was shattered by the exposure of Lance Armstrong as a systematic cheat in October 2012. Cookson, who was president of British Cycling for 17 years until 2013 when he took over the UCI, used the marker for applauding UCI’s establishment of genuinely independent anti-doping processes, genuinely independent case management. The President of the world governing body of cycling also remarked he does not want to be complacent or to criticize other sports and added he thinks we are in a good position as a sport and also said he thinks our credibility is much higher than it was a few years ago, but we need to keep working at that.

In another development, US cycling athletes Robert Baatz and Mary Verrando-Higgins have accepted sanctions for anti-doping rule violations after testing positive for prohibited substances. Baatz provided an in-competition urine sample on March 12, 2016, at the Tour of Corsicana in Corsicana and his sample tested positive for the presence of an exogenous androgenic anabolic steroid and/or its metabolites, which was confirmed by Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS) analysis. The 48-year-old accepted a two-year sanction for the anti-doping rule violation and has been disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to March 12, 2016, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes.

Verrando-Higgins accepted a one-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation after testing positive for a prohibited substance administered with the support of a licensed physician. The 54-year-old cyclist tested positive for the prohibited substance 17α-methyl-5α-androstane-3, 17-diol and 17α-methyl-5β-androstane-3,17-diol, metabolites of Methyltestosterone, as a result of an in-competition urine sample she provided on May 24, 2016, in Winston-Salem.

Anabolic Agents are prohibited at all times under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing (the Protocol), the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) National Anti-Doping Policies (USOC NADP), and the International Cycling Union (UCI) Anti-Doping Rules, all of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

  WADA Will Not Appeal Against Tyson Gay’s Lenient Doping Ban

WADA Will Not Appeal Against Tyson Gay’s Lenient Doping Ban

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has remarked that it will not appeal against the “too lenient” doping ban imposed on American sprinter Tyson Gay by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

The 31-year-old Gay tested positive for the presence of an exogenous androgenic anabolic steroid and/or its metabolites which was confirmed by CIR (GC/C/IRMS) analysis, as the result of two out-of-competition and one in-competition urine samples collected by both USADA and the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF).

In a statement, WADA said Gay’s ban that had been widely criticized in Europe as extremely lenient was ‘compatible with the World Anti-Doping Code.’ The world’s second fastest man, Tyson Gay, accepted a suspension of one year last month by USADA after a 2013 positive test for an anabolic steroid. USADA backdated the ban to June 23, 2013 to make Gay eligible to make a return to running later this month and Gay’s first race after the ban will be a 100 meters at Lausanne’s Diamond League meeting on July 3.

Gay accepted the doping ban and returned the silver medal he won as a member of the U.S. 4×100 meters relay team at the 2012 London Olympics. The athlete has also been disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to July 15, 2012, the date he first made use of a product that contained a prohibited substance, including the forfeiture of all medals, points, and prizes.

USADA CEO Travis T. Tygart had remarked we appreciate Tyson doing the right thing by immediately withdrawing from competition once he was notified, accepting responsibility for his decisions, and fully and truthfully cooperating with us in our ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding his case.

Under rules, an athlete receives a suspension of two years for their first major doping offense but this ban may get reduced for ‘substantial cooperation’ under anti-doping rules. USADA remarked that Tyson Gay was eligible for a doping ban reduction as he offered what it termed substantial assistance in his case and WADA said it was satisfied with the USADA decision. In a statement, WADA remarked it is satisfied that Tyson Gay provided substantial assistance to USADA in an appropriate fashion after careful review and scrutiny of the full case file.

It added WADA will therefore not appeal USADA’s decision that is compatible with the World Anti-Doping Code. Officials of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) that also has the right to appeal against the decision declined to make a comment and remarked that the matter remains in the hands of its doping review board to assess. Last month, IAAF president Lamine Diack said he supported the WADA Code rule that permits athletes to receive reduced sentences if they provide substantial assistance to anti-doping agencies.

In an interview at the inaugural IAAF World Relays in the Bahamas, Diack said we have to use this in the fight against doping. He added if someone gave really very good cooperation and gives us the possibility to do more to fight doping, we have to do something.

Gay is keen to make a return and remarked Lausanne has always been one of his favorite meets, and added he is thrilled to have it be his opening meet.
