The IWF reports that as a consequence of the IOC’s reanalyses of samples from the 2012 London Olympic Games, the sample of the following Athlete has returned with an Adverse Analytical Finding:

  • CIRICU, Anatoli (MDA) – Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (S1.1 Anabolic agents)

In line with the relevant rules and regulations, the IWF imposed mandatory provisional suspensions upon the Athlete, who remain provisionally suspended in view of potential anti-doping rule violations until his case is closed.

Following the IOC’s decision, the IWF will be in a position to take over the results management of the case.

Should it be determined that no anti-doping violation was committed, the relevant decision shall also be published.

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