RUSADA has banned the retired figure skater Maria Sotskova for ten years for forging a medical certificate
The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) has disqualified the retired figure skater Maria Sotskova for ten years for forging a medical certificate. The source has informed the TASS news portal about it.
The unnamed source: The Disciplinary Committee of RUSADA disqualified Sotskova for 10 years for forging a medical certificate, which she tried to use as explanation for violations of accessibility rules for testing. The situation is almost identical to the situation of the athlete Danil Lysenko. I think an official decision should soon appear on the RUSADA website.
According to the information I have, a prohibited substance was also found in one of the athlete’s doping tests.
The Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee is a structure independent of RUSADA that makes decisions about punishments for athletes and coaches suspected of violating anti-doping rules.
