  Double Olympic Freestyle Wrestling Medalist Banned For Doping

The United World Wrestling (UWW) has confirmed that double Olympic freestyle wrestling medalist Toghrul Asgarov is one of two athletes suspended by the international governing body of the sport over anti-doping violations.

Asgarov, the Azerbaijani who won the gold medal in the men’s 60 kilogram competition at London 2012 before picking up silver in the 65kg category last year in Rio de Janeiro, was banned for a period of 12 months after he tested positive for Higenamine.

Asgarov also won a gold medal at the 2015 European Games in Baku in the 65kg weight category. He also won a 55kg silver from the 2010 World Championships in Moscow. It was announced that Asgarov’s suspension is due to run from the date of the decision until April 17 next year.

Higenamine falls under section three of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s 2017 Prohibited List and is often found in supplements. In a statement, the UWW said no Therapeutic Use Exemption was delivered by UWW to justify the presence of Higenamine in system of the wrestler.

Liverpool’s Mamadou Sakho was temporarily banned by UEFA last year after he tested positive for Higenamine. Sakho missed the 2016 Europa League final but was later cleared.

It was also announced by the UWW that a suspension of four years has been imposed on Russian Greco-Roman wrestler Aslan Visaitov after traces of Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor agonists were found in a test given by him at the Under-23 European Championships in Szombathely in Hungary.

The positive sample of Asgarovc came from an out-of-competition test completed on February 5 and analyzed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)-accredited laboratory in German city Cologne. The drug found in system of the Russian is a hormone and metabolic modulator prohibited by WADA. The suspension of Visaitov will run from April 24 until April 23 in 2021. The results of Visaitov from the Greco-Roman 66kg category at the competition, where he won a silver medal, have been altered following his disqualification. Ukrainian Serhii Kozub has been awarded silver with bronze medals for Bulgaria’s Deyvid Tihomirov Dimitrov and Sebastian Nadj of Serbia.

In another development, Uzbekistan wrestler Artur Taymazov has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) stripped him of his Beijing 2008 gold medal for doping. The sample of Taymazov from the Chinese capital failed for banned steroids Turinabol and Stanozolol (Winstrol). Taymazov, the men’s 120 kilograms freestyle competitor, had been a triple Olympic champion until losing his Beijing medal, after also winning the title at both Athens 2004 and London 2012. A CAS statement said the Uzbekistani wrestler Artur Taymazov has filed an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the decision issued by the International Olympic Committee dated March 31, 2017 in which he was found, further to recent retesting of samples, to have committed an anti-doping rule violation (Turinabol and Stanozolol) during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games where he won the gold medal in the men’s 120kg freestyle wrestling event.

  Russian Wrestlers Could Miss Rio Olympics

The wrestling team of Russia may not compete at the Rio Olympics this year after it recorded “tens” of positive doping results, according to an announcement by the head of the Russian Wrestling Federation (WFR).

WFR President Mikhail Mamiashvili remarked multiple positive doping tests by Russian wrestlers were uncovered by an internal investigation. The head of the Russian Wrestling Federation said there are tens of positive tests in the team and everyone is in a bad condition psychologically. Mamiashvili also commented that wrestlers of the country could now possibly join track-and-field athletes of Russia in being barred from competing at the Olympics in August.

Mamiashvili said 2015 World Cup silver medalist Sergei Semenov and 2014 world championship silver medalist Evgeny Saleev had been caught using Meldonium. The drug, which is used for treating low magnesium levels and diabetes, was banned on January 1 this year by the World Anti-Doping Agency after it was linked to enhanced sporting performance. Russia’s four-time world swimming champion Yulia Efimova announced on Monday that her doping samples had tested positive for Meldonium. Efimova added she was not notified by anyone of the inclusion of Meldonium into the WADA’s list of substances prohibited from January 1, 2016. The Russian athlete, who is the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist in swimming, has already been once under suspension for doping abuse. She received a ban of 16 months in 2014 after testing positive for a DHEA, a banned substance.

R-Sport news agency recently disclosed around 40 athletes from Russia from more than 10 different sports had tested positive for the drug in the first two months of this year.

Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko recently said he was ready to tender his resignation if asked to do so. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Mutko would remain as the sports minister despite the scandal.

The disclosure came a few hours after four athletes from Russia were exposed as having tested positive for Meldonium, the recently-banned drug. This development further damaged the efforts of Moscow to overturn a suspension in time for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics starting on August 5. Russia athletes were suspended from competing after the Russian Athletics Federation received suspension from the world governing body of athletics after a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report exposed corruption and endemic cheating in Russian athletics.

Since then, at least 18 Russian male and female sports professionals have tested positive for Meldonium despite a notification released by WADA in October.

The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) tried to clean its hands by saying all national sports federations were timely informed about the inclusion of Meldonium (Mildronate) in the WADA list of substances prohibited for use by athletes. Alexander Kravtsov, the head of the Russian national teams’ Training Center, remarked the Russian Anti-Doping Agency had officially and timely notified doctors of all sports federations that Meldonium would be on the list of banned substances starting January 1. Kravtsov added the doctors, considering their official status, had to pass on this information to their teams.

Wrestling athlete accepts sanction

John Lorenz, of Fountain, Colorado, an athlete in the sport of wrestling, has tested positive for a prohibited substance and accepted a suspension for his anti-doping rule violation, according to a statement by the United States Anti-doping Agency (USADA).

The 31-year-old accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, which began on October 4, 2011, the day he accepted his sanction. A urine sample collected out-of-competition on July 10, 2011 from Lorenz contained Clomiphene that is in the class of Hormone Antagonists and Modulators. Clomiphene (Clomid), a female fertility drug, is commonly used to boost the production of natural hormones such as testosterone immediately before the end of or at the end of an anabolic steroid cycle. It is indicated for the treatment of ovulation dysfunction in women desiring pregnancy by initiating a series of endocrine events culminating in a rise of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). Clomid is a mixture of two geometric isomers, enclomifene (E-clomifene) and zuclomifene (Z-clomifene) and has been found very effective in the treatment of secondary male hypogonadism and is commonly used as a “recovery drug” and taken toward the end of a steroid cycle and may also result in direct stimulation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis.

Under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles (FILA) Anti-Doping Regulations, both of which have both adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List, hormone Antagonists and Modulators are prohibited.

The wrestling athlete is also disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to July 10, 2011, the day the sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes as a result of the sanction. The 31-year-old competed at 211.5 pounds at the U.S. Wrestling world team trials in Oklahoma City in June 2011.

At the 2010 U.S. Open in Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center, WCAP wrestler Pfc. John Lorenz lost 2-0, 1-0 to six-time national champion Justin Ruiz of New York Athletic Club in the 96-kilo/211.5-pound Greco finale. Lewis after the win said Lorenz is making great progress and it is always good to fight a real fighter. Lorenz came second in the U.S. World Team Trials and third in U.S. Open in 2011 and was second in the U.S. Open and Fifth in Dave Schultz Memorial International in 2010. John Lorenz was fourth in 2009 New York AC International and came sixth in U.S Nationals in 2009 and claimed the sixth spot in the U.S. Nationals in the years 2007 and 2008. In 2001, he came third in Dave Schultz Memorial International, fourth in Sunkist Kids International Open… fourth in New York AC Invitational, and third in University Nationals and competed for LaCrosse Logan HS for Doug LeClair, where he was a State champion in 1998 and 1997 Wisconsin/Minnesota Bi State champion. At the 2011 U.S. World Team Trials, Lorenz won the Challenge Tournament at 96 kilos, beating Justin Millard in the finals and faced Justin Ruiz, a seven-time U.S. Open champion and 2005 World bronze medalist, in the best-of-three finals series.

Olympic Weightlifter Joshua Gilbert Banned

Olympic weightlifter Joshua Gilbert of Las Vegas, Nev., an athlete in the sport of weightlifting, accepted a suspension of three years from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for his anti-doping rule violation.

The 19-year-old tested positive for Furosemide on March 2, 2012 at the National Championships, and refused to submit to doping control on March 20, 2012. Since Gilbert had not yet been notified of the results of the March 2nd test prior to his refusal to submit, under the rules both incidents are classified as one anti-doping rule violation. Both the incidents are prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Weightlifting Federation (“IWF”) Anti-Doping Policies, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code.

Gilbert was banned from “Average Broz’s Gymnasium” (Las Vegas, Nevada) after he tested positive for a banned substance.

Aggravating circumstances justify a period of ineligibility greater than the standard sanction, and as such the weightlifter received a three-year period of ineligibility for his anti-doping rule violation which began on April 5, 2012, the day he accepted a provisional suspension in accordance with the WADA Code.

Joshua Gilbert s also disqualified from all competitive results obtained on or subsequent to, March 2, 2012, the date his sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes. Gilbert, a promising Olympic lifter who trained under John Broz, tested positive for diuretic furosemide at the 2012 National Weightlifting Championships that was held in conjunction with the U.S. Olympic Trials as part of the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus (Ohio) on March 2, 2012. Broz lived and trained with legendary Bulgarian superheavyweight Antonio Krastev, who recorded a world record snatch of 216 kilograms in 1987, during his career.

Furosemide is listed as a masking agent because of its potential to assist in elimination of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs from the body besides helping athletes to make weight in sports with multiple weight classes like weightlifting, boxing, and wrestling.

In another development, Patrick Mendes also from “Average Broz’s Gymnasium” tested positive for human growth hormone and was suspended for a period of two years. The 21-year-old tested positive for Human Growth Hormone (HGH) as the result of two separate samples collected on February 7, 2012, and February 27, 2012 as part of USADA’s Out of Competition Testing Program. The samples were tested at the WADA-accredited Sports Medicine Research & Testing Laboratory (SMRTL), located in Salt Lake City, Utah. HGH is prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Weightlifting Federation (“IWF”) Anti-Doping Policies, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code. He accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, which began on March 19, 2012, the day he accepted a provisional suspension.

A U.S. Olympic hopeful in weightlifting, Mendes, tested positive for human growth hormone (HGH). Mendes, who graduated from Del Sol High in Las Vegas, accepted a two-year ban, which commenced on March 19. Mendes became the second U.S. athlete found using HGH after minor-league baseball player Mike Jacobs, who tested positive under the program instituted by Major League Baseball last summer.
