MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Russian swimmer Yana Martynova has been suspended for four years over doping, Martynova’s personal coach Gulnara Aminova told TASS on Friday.
According to the coach, the drug ostarin has been found in the swimmer’s body system.
"Yes, she [Martynova] has been suspended. It is what it is," Aminova said.
Some athletes have been acquitted while some others have been suspended for a lesser term. And their cases will be examined only in the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne. But we won’t be able to pay for the services of that Court as we simply don’t have such money," the swimmer’s personal coach said.
The media reported on Friday that the International Swimming Federation (FINA) had confirmed Martynova’s suspension. The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) suspended the swimmer from competitions on July 27, 2015 after she tested positive for doping on July 18.
The swimmer withdrew at the last moment from the FINA World Championship held in Kazan in Russia in August 2015. According to the official version, she sustained an injury.
