MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. The All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) issued a four-year suspension for runner Yulia Zaitseva for the violation of regulations on the abuse of performance enhancing drugs, the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) announced on Tuesday.
The statement from the Russian anti-doping body reported that the suspension term for the Russian athlete is in force starting July 16, 2015.
On Monday, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) published a list of Russian athletes banned from international competitions for the duration of the suspension of ARAF’s membership in the world’s governing body of field and track athletics.
The list contains a total of 4,027 names of Russian athletes including national team leaders (such as Yelena Isinbayeva, Yekaterina Koneva, Daria Klishina, Anna Chicherova, Sergei Shubenkov) as well as athletes suspended over doping-related issues (Valery Borchin, Sergei Kirdyapkin, Olga Kaniskina, Sergei Bakulin, Vladimir Kanaikin, Lilia Shobukhova, Yevgeniya Zolotova).
The list was prepared based on the information provided by the ARAF. The IAAF, however, reported on that the provided list of names was not final and could be a subject to changes.
The IAAF said at its Council meeting in November that a report prepared by the ARAF on the struggle against doping was unsatisfactory and decided by a majority of votes to suspend Russia’s membership in the international athletics association.
Experts say it is highly possible that Russian national athletics teams will be suspended from the Summer Olympic Games in Brazil this year.
