MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) has lifted temporary bans from athletes Nadezhda Kotlyarova, Olga Vovk, Gulshat Fazletdinova and Andrei Minzhulin imposed for taking meldonium, official Nadezhda Kotlyarova said on Friday.
"We have already received papers from RUSADA notifying us that the temporary ban on the participation in competitions was lifted. However, we will have hearings at RUSADA on April 18. I don’t know what will be there," Kotlyarova told TASS.
According to WADA’s most recent data, a total of over 170 doping samples worldwide tested positive for meldonium, including some 30 Russian athletes. Among them are tennis star Maria Sharapova, Olympic medalist in swimming Yulia Efimova and Olympic medalist in speed skating Pavel Kulizhnikov.
On Wednesday, WADA announced that the concentration of less than one microgram of meldonium in the body system of an athlete, whose doping tests were conducted before March 1, was acceptable and the athlete at the issue was not a subject to any sanctions whatsoever.
