Russian curler formally charged with doping after testing positive for meldonium

Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitckii has been formally charged with doping
after testing positive for meldonium. His first sample had tested positive for the substance,
which was banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency in 2016. His B-sample,
which is used to confirm positive tests, was tested on Monday in Korea.

Krushelnitckii won bronze in the mixed doubles curling event with hiswife Anastasia Bryzgalova earlier in the Games. He has already left PyeongChang under suspicions of testing positive.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport released a statement announcing the charges.
Krushelnitckii was one of 168 Olympic Athletes of Russia allowed to
participate in PyeongChang despite the International Olympic Committee’s
banning of Russia for a state-sponsored doping program at the Sochi
Games in 2014. All athletes were cleared by the IOC and were supposedly
clean.

This isn’t the first time Russians have run into meldonium. It was the substance that got Maria Sharapova banned from tennis for 15 months
and also the substance that speed skater Semen Elistratov tested
positive for 2016. Elistratov won a bronze medal in the 1,500m event at
PyeongChang and is being investigated by the IOC for his comments critizing the Russia ban.

Trump will be very disappointed in his favorite race:

Norwegian Olympians found with alarming stash of asthma drugs in PyeongChang


70% of Norwegian Olympic skiing medals won by asthmatics – Swedish documentary
The Norwegian Olympic delegation has brought around 6,000 doses of asthma medication to the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics to treat national team members if they are diagnosed with the chronic respiratory disease.

Norwegian government-owned broadcasting corporation NRK published the list of drugs taken to PyeongChang by the Norwegian team doctor. It includes 1,800 doses of Symbicort, 1,200 doses of Atrovent, 1,200 doses of Alvesco, 360 doses of Ventolin and 1,200 doses of Airomir – which amounts to 10 times more asthma drugs than Finland has brought to South Korea.

NRK also reported that the usage of six of the drugs were approved by the World Anti-Doping Committee (WADA) under the Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) program.

"We stand for the doses we have. We have calculated based on what we have had in the previous Olympic Games," the head of the Norwegian health team at the Olympic Games, Mona Kjeldsberg, told NRK news.

Norway, a dominant force in cross-country skiing, has been criticized for excessive use of asthma drugs which, along with easing acute asthma symptoms, can also help to open bronchial airways in order to increase fatigue resistance.

70% of Norwegian Olympic skiing medals won by asthmatics – Swedish documentary

Swedish public broadcaster SVT says 70 percent of Norwegian medals in Olympic skiing events were won by athletes diagnosed with asthma.

The broadcaster carried out an investigation which also found that beta-2 stimulators, prescribed to treat bronchial asthma, could increase the muscle strength of athletes who use it.

SVT reporters interviewed Peter Kallings, a veterinary and doping expert for the International Riding Association, who said that clenbuterol, a drug containing the same active ingredients as salbutamol and other beta-2 stimulators, could produce an anabolic effect on horses.

According to Kallings, numerous tests conducted by veterinary doctors proved that clenbuterol is an effective fat burner which also helps to build muscle mass. Animals tested positive for clenbuterol are not allowed to take part in races.

Morten Hostrup, a researcher at the University of Copenhagen, told SVT that six inhalations of another asthma drug, formoterol, substantially boosts sprint speed and enhances muscle strength.

It has been scientifically proven that along with easing acute asthma symptoms, asthma medication can also help to expand athletes’ lungs capacity and increase fatigue resistance.

Norway has already been criticized in the past for an alleged overuse of asthma drugs, with many countries raising questions about Norwegian asthmatics' ability to win races.

In 2016, the debate over of Norway’s asthma drug therapy reignited, when the doping test of three-time Olympic medalist Martin Johnsrud Sundby revealed elevated levels of Ventolin.

Sundby was subsequently slapped with a two-month ban, which was by many considered a mild punishment. After serving the disqualification, Sundby resumed training and will compete at the PyeongChang Winter Games, which begin on Friday.

Yup... Pova is one of them, from Russia. If you are an athlete and you can't find a doctor to prescribe asthma medication, you are out of luck.

Russian bobsledder Nadezha Sergeeva is the nation’s second athlete to fail a doping test at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics – a day before the International Olympic Committee executive board will decide whether to reinstate Russia from its ban for widespread and systemic doping.

The Russian delegation at the Winter Olympics said Sergeeva, 30, tested positive for trimetazdine, a medication used for angina sufferers that is listed by the World Anti-Doping Agency as a banned substance affecting the metabolism. Sergeeva, who finished 12th in the two-woman bobsleigh, had given the drug-test sample on Sunday.

Russian bobsledder who wore anti-doping shirt just failed a doping test

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea – Leading up to the start of these Games, a Russian bobsledder bravely wore a T-shirt under her training suit that said, “I Don’t Do Doping.”

On Friday, that same bobsledder failed a doping test.

Russian bobsled federation president Alexander Zubkov announced that Nadezhda Sergeeva tested positive for a banned heart medication. She is the second athlete in the 2018 Winter Olympics to flunk a test. Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky was found to have meldonium in his system earlier in the Games.

The announcement came on the same day 15-year-old Alina Zagitova won the first gold medal for the Olympic Athletes of Russia, in figure skating. It also happened on the same day as the Russian men’s hockey team advanced to the gold-medal match, beating the Czech Republic.

The International Olympic Committee has forced Russian athletes to compete here under the label “Olympic Athletes from Russia” (O.A.R.) as punishment for doping offenses at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. Sergeeva has been open about her opposition to the decision, which means the Olympic anthem will play at ceremonies for gold medalists from Russia, and the delegation may not be able to carry the flag of the Russian Federation at Closing Ceremonies this weekend.

Report: Russian spies behind Winter Olympics cyber attack

According to a report in The Washington Post on Sunday, Russian spies were responsible for the Winter Olympics cyber attack during the opening ceremonies.

The Post cited U.S. intelligence officials, who said the Russians tried to make the hack appear to be initiated by North Korea.

Olympic officials had confirmed the attack but did not reveal the party that was responsible. Shortly after the hack, Pyeongchang organizing spokesperson Sung Baik-you told Reuters: "We know the cause of the problem, but that kind of issue occurs frequently during the Games. We decided with the IOC we are not going to reveal the source (of the attack)."

The Russian team was banned from the 2018 Winter Games due to a state-run doping scandal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Russian athletes who had proved they were clean were allowed to compete as Olympic Athletes from Russia under the neutral Olympic flag, but the Russian flag and Russian anthem were banned from the Games.
