GENEVA, August 17. /TASS/. Russia’s national track and field team has been stripped of the 2008 Olympic Games gold medal in the 4x100 meter relay race due to a positive doping test of runner Yulia Chermoshanskaya, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said in a statement.

The decision, which took effect immediately, was made as a result of double-checking 2008 Olympic Games doping tests. Chermoshanskaya’s sample tested positive for two banned substances - stanozolol and turinabol.

Yevgeniya Polyakova, Aleksandra Fedoriva and Yulia Gushchina took part in the relay race with Chermoshanskaya. From now on, Russia’s 4x100m relay race national team has been officially suspended.

Russia’s Olympic Committee should return the gold medals to the IOC as soon as possible.
