MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Russia’s chief race-walking coach Viktor Chegin has received life-long ban from any athletics activities, approved by Russia’s Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) after investigators found him guilty of doping abuse, RUSADA website said on Friday.
The investigation of Chegin doping abuse case finished on February 17. The police found out a number of Russian athletes trained by Chegin were recently punished for doping.
Among them is Olympic and World Champion race walker Elena Lashmanova who was handed a two-year suspension after her blood test on January 4, 2014 proved positive for taking substances prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
In January 2015 RUSADA suspended Olympic Champions in race walk Valery Borchin, Sergey Kirdyapkin and Olga Kaniskina as well as Russia’s 2011 World Champion Sergey Bakulin and 2011 World Championship silver medalist Vladimir Kanaikin after they were found guilty of violating anti-doping regulations.
It was earlier announced, Chegin had been suspended from work in the Olympic Training Center of the Republic of Mordovia.
The WADA Independent Commission was set up and began its work, following a series of German documentaries on the alleged mass use of performance enhancing drugs among Russia’s field and track athletes.
In December 2014, German TV Channel ARD aired a series of documentaries on alleged doping abuse in Russian sports. The ARD’s two-part documentary, entitled Geheimsache Doping (Secret Doping Case), claimed that Russian athletes systematically took banned substances on instructions from their coaches.
