Turkish Olympic Weightlifter Medal Stripped

What now may be called the summer of discontent and quite rightly so, another Olympian has been stripped of their medal for doping.

New evidence has came to light that has resulted in Sibel Ozkan of Turkey to be stripped of her silver medal she won at Beijing in 2008.

It has been 8 years since the games and since the test has been conducted proving that time will not come as a healer for the guilt ridden.

The latest techniques have managed to catch out athletes on retested samples, techniques that were not even available in 2012 which may shed light on even more doped athletes.

In a statement released by the IOC, the 28 year old tested positive for Stanozolol.

This latest case is one of 98 athletes whom have tested positive for doping in the re-testing of samples that have been conducted since 2015. [1]

The Turkish Olympic Committee have in line with a request from the IOC ordered Ozkan to return her medal and the results have such been modified by the International Weightlifting Federation.

This recent clean up operation must be on the very minds of those athletes who have been cheating as the IOC and the WADA look to stamp out performance enhancing drugs in all sports.

Stanozolol is a synthetic anabolic steroid commonly used by athletes for increased recovery times and by bodybuilders to lose fat whilst maintaining muscle.
