WADA investigate reasons for Russian bobsledder Sergeeva positive doping test

The IOC will decide on Saturday whether the Russian curling team will be formally reinstated to participate in the closing ceremony.

In a statement earlier today, the Russian Bobsled Federation confirmed that Russian bobsleigh pilot Nadezhda Sergeeva tested positive for a banned heart medication on 18 February, just five days after she passed another test.

The Russian delegation said in a statement the substance was trimetazidine, a medication used to treat angina.

The ruling came as the International Olympic Committee was debating whether to lift a ban imposed on Russian Federation in December for mass doping.

Russians are competing as neutral athletes at the Games due to allegations they ran a systematic drug-cheating program at the 2014 Sochi Games.

But Krushelnitsky decided not to contest the case and the court said that he had admitted doping.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) later permitted 168 (deemed-clean) Olympians to compete in the games. The athlete recognized the violation and refused from opening of the B probe. They have been unable to wear national uniforms or have the Russian anthem played at medal ceremonies.

Sergeyeva's ban came a day after Russian curler Aleksandr Krushelnitsky was stripped of a bronze medal for using meldonium.

"Should this case be proven or should this case come to fruition, that will also be part of consideration as to whether they will be allowed to march in the closing ceremony under the (Russian) flag", International Olympic Committee spokesperson Mark Adams stated.

"The results obtained by the team at the same event are disqualified with all resulting consequences; the athlete is excluded from Pyeongchang 2018; her accreditation shall be withdrawn".

Russian bobsleigh official Sergei Zhurkin told reporters at the Olympic sliding centre: "At this moment she can't say where she made a mistake".

Sergeyeva is the second Russian athlete to test positive for illegal performance-enhancing drugs at the 2018 Olympics.
