The IWF reports that sample of Mr. Andrei Rybakov (BLR) has returned an Adverse Analytical Finding for (S4.5.3 Hormone and metabolic modulators) meldonium. As a consequence, the athlete is provisionally suspended in view of a potential anti-doping rule violation.

In any case where it is determined that the athlete did not commit an anti-doping rule violation, the relevant decision will also be published.

The IWF will not make any further comment on the case until it is closed.
