SOCHI, February 23, (ITAR-TASS) - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) disqualified Ukrainian cross country skier Marina Lisogor from the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia’s Sochi after the athlete tested positive for doping use.
“Lisogor, 30, tested positive on 18 February for the presence of trimetazidine,” the IOC said in a statement.
Addressing the IOC disciplinary commission, Lisogor said she was taking a prescribed medicine and did not know that it contained the banned substance of trimetazidine, therefore she consumed doping unintentionally.
“The Athlete shall be excluded from the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi in 2014, and shall have her Olympic identity and accreditation card immediately cancelled,” the IOC statement said.
German biathlete Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle, Latvian ice hockey player Vitalijs Pavlovs and Italian bobsleigh racer William Frullani were earlier also disqualified by the IOC from the Sochi Olympics over positive doping tests.
