The IWF reports that as a consequence of the IOC’s reanalyses of samples from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games (IOC – wave 2), the samples of the following Athletes have returned Adverse Analytical Findings:
In line with the relevant rules and regulations, the IWF imposed mandatory provisional suspensions upon the Athletes, who remain provisionally suspended in view of potential anti-doping rule violations until their cases are closed.
Following the IOC’s decisions, the IWF will be in a position to take over the results management of these cases.
Should it be determined in any of the cases that no anti-doping violation was committed, the relevant decision shall also be published.
The IWF will not make any further comments on the cases until they are closed.
