Russian athlete Natalya Antyukh was disqualified from the women’s 400m hurdles at the 2012 London Olympics for doping.
According to the statement made by the Athletic Integrity Unit (AIU), the sanctions have been extended against Antyukh, who was banned for 4 years in 2021 and whose rankings were deleted between 30 June 2013 and 31 December 2015.
As a result of reanalysis of Antyukh’s samples found in the former Moscow Doping Control Laboratory, it was decided to delete his degrees between July 15, 2012 and June 29, 2013.
Thus, the 41-year-old athlete was stripped of the gold medal she won in the women’s 400m hurdles final at the 2012 London Olympics.
The gold medal went to Lashinda Demus of the USA, who finished the fight in 2nd place.
Antyukh, who won the bronze medal in the women’s 400 meters at the 2004 Athens Olympics, became the European champion in 2010 and the third in the world in 2011 in the 400 meters hurdles.
