MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. The Russian Swimming Federation has disqualifed swimmer Vladimir Dyatchin for doping in accordance with the decision of the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee, the press service of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) said on Thursday.
Dyatchin was tested for doping on June 30, 2014 at the Russian Open Water Championship. In July, the athlete was barred from training and competing until a decision is made on whether he violated the anti-doping regulations.
