MOSCOW, April 26. /TASS/. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has ruled to strip the Russian team of the 2013 World Championship’s gold medal in the women’s 4x400 m relay event after athlete Antonina Krivoshapka tested positive for doping, the IAAF press office reported on Wednesday.
The Russian female athlete was also stripped of the IAAF 2013 World Championship’s bronze medal in the women’s 400 m heat.
The world athletics body has suspended Krivoshapka for two years (from September 7, 2016 to September 6, 2018).
The IAAF also confirmed two-year suspensions for Yevgeniya Kolodko (stripped of the 2012 silver in short put and suspended for the period of July 2, 2016 - July 1, 2018), hammer thrower Anna Bulgakova (suspended March 2019, 2017 - March 28, 2019), discus thrower Vera Ganeeva (suspended July 2, 2016 - July 1, 2018) and pole vaulter Dmitry Starodubtsev (suspended July 2, 2016 - July 1, 2018). All these athletes earlier admitted their guilt of consuming performance enhancing drugs.
The IAAF 2013 World Championship was held in Moscow on August 10-18. Following Krivoshapka’s suspension and the annulment of the results, the Russian national team lost its first place in team count at the IAAF 2013 world event and moved to the 2nd place.
