Five weightlifters suspended after London 2012 retests

Five weightlifters, including two Olympic champions, have been provisionally suspended after retests of their samples from the 2012 London Olympics came back positive for doping.Ukraine’s Oleksiy Torokhtiy could now be stripped of the Olympic title he won in the 105-kg category in London while Azerbaijan’s Bulgaria-born Valentin Hristov could lose his bronze medal from the 56-kg category.Uzbekistan’s Ruslan Nurudinov, who came fourth in the 105kg in London, Belarus’s Mikalai Novikau and Armenia’s Melanie Daluzyan were also suspended after the International Olympic Committee’s re-analysis discovered adverse analytical findings, the IWF said in a statement.Nurudinov won the Olympic title in Rio in 2016 as well as the world title in Poland in 2013 and the gold medal at the Asian Games in Jakarta this year.
