The IWF reports that the ITA has asserted an anti-doping rule violation against Ms. Ekaterina KATINA (RUS) under Article 2.2 of the IWF Anti-Doping Rules.
The athlete is provisionally suspended with immediate effect until the resolution of the proceedings.
The asserted ADRV is based on investigations conducted by the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Intelligence and Investigations Department (WADA I&I) and by Professor Richard McLaren into allegations of systemic doping practices in Russian sport as well as Moscow Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) data retrieved by WADA I&I over time.
The prosecution of the cases is being handled entirely by the ITA on behalf of the IWF. Given that the cases are underway, there will be no further comments during the ongoing proceedings.
