BERLIN, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Three biathletes from Russia and Lithuania were tested positive for doping and temporarily suspended from sports competitions by the International Biathlon Union (IBU), Germany’s DPA news agency reported.
The news was also confirmed by some other European media, however, reports did not disclose the names of the athletes only stating that they are of both sexes and come from Russia and Lithuania. Doping tests took place in late December, according to reports.
It is also unknown whether the biathletes were on the roster of their national teams for the upcoming 2014 Olympic Games in Russia’s resort city of Sochi, but the IBU already notified the International Olympic Committee (IOC) of the incident.
EuroSport.com reported that the Russian Biathlon Union will hold on Wednesday an extraordinary session of the anti-doping committee to form a special commission on the investigation of the doping incident.
