    Kateryna Tabashnyk (UKR) banned for 19 months. She was 5th in the HJ at Berlin 2018 and 4th at Euro Indoors last year.

    Quite a lengthy story involving medication taken after she was hospitalised in Antalya, Turkey in March 2019.

        I can't quite work out what that article is saying. It starts by saying "Brett Clothier said more than a third of the AIU's cases are "World Championship or Olympic medallists or major marathon winners" which to me I was reading as "more than a third of our active caseload that we will achieve outcomes on soon", but it could be something different. But then the article ends by saying "Clothier added: "Based on what has happened in the past, yes, for sure there will be cases before the Olympics that will shock people." which to me implies that he is just doing a prediction that there will be cases before the Games that will be shocking, as usual.

          About Nataliya Pryshchepa:

          Let's be honest for a moment here. Basically all of the former Soviet states other than possibly the Baltic states still have that rotten system in place with regard to coaches and doping. God knows Russia is terrible, but to let Belarus, Ukraine, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, just to name a few ultra corrupt former Soviet Union countries, get away scot-free is ridiculous. The idea that those countries would have gotten rid of the system that is one of the few reasons that they are even on the sports map is naive at best.

            Gotta agree with you there on this point Pierre.... especially when you consider how many failed tests have come from the nations that you mentioned, Belarus and Ukraine of the former USSR countries with particularly notorious records in the past 15 years or so.

            Absolutely throw the book at Russia for its doping problem, but now would be a *great* time for WADA and World Athletics to look at the procedures and systems that are in place in former Soviet states too.

              Only 10 authorised neutral athletes will be allowed at the Olympics. Not sure how they will decide who gets the spots across different events: https://www.worldathletics.org/news/...-breach-anti-d

                Seems like Andrey Silnov and Natalya Antyukh are in deep trouble. Doubt that they will lose their gold medals from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics (respectively), though. Too much time has passed, and Germaine Mason, who would be the gold medalist in the high jump, is dead. Lashinda Demus would be the (well-deserved) gold medalist in the 400 hurdles.

                  Antyukh REALLY not a surprise. I see they've charged Soboleva again as well.

                      It's time to take a look at all of these Kenyan positives. High and low profile athletes getting caught weekly. Why keep Russia banned when another nation is just as bad? It can't all be blamed on unscrupulous agents?

                        I think the particularly egregious issue with Russia was it being state-run doping. Other dubious nations it seems to be turning a blind eye/lack of firm oversight. They need to keep testing.

                          Kenya has said they will ban drugs cheats for life, and sack them if they are armed forces or police: https://www.nation.co.ke/sports/athl...frz/index.html

                              The US authorities seem to be a bit feeble pressing cases.
