VIENNA, January 12. /TASS/. The International Biathlon Union (IBU) announced on Monday that reanalyzed A samples of two provisionally suspended biathletes, namely Russia’s Alexander Loginov and Ukraine’s Serguei Sednev, proved positive for prohibited substances.
The IBU said in its statement that the reanalyzed A samples of Loginov, provisionally suspended as of November 25, 2014, and Sednev, provisionally suspended as of December 15, 2014, proved positive for recombinant EPO from the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) laboratory.
