IWF reports that the sample of Mr David BEDZHANYAN (RUS) has returned an Adverse Analytical Finding for Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone metabolite (4-chloro-18-nor-17b-hydroxymethyl, 17a-methyl-5aandrost-13-en-3a-ol). (S1.1 Anabolic Androgenic Steroids).

The Athlete is already under provisional suspension in view of an other potential anti-doping rule violation since 12 August 2019.

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.

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