OAR bobsledder fails doping test

OAR bobsledder fails doping test

"The doping test of a pilot from Russia's team, Nadezhda Sergeeva, from February 18 came back positive for a drug medication, listed as banned substance", the statement on the Russian Bobsleigh Federation's Facebook page says.

The positive test comes as the International Olympic Committee debates reinstating Russian Federation in time for Sunday's closing ceremony. She said the other athletes "warmed" to her after she was allowed to compete. "Federation representatives at the Olympics" are starting to prepare a defense, he said.

They're already denying that she took this substance, even though 5 days earlier she passed a drug test, but then failed this one.

A Russian bobsledder who previously boasted of being a "clean" athlete faces a ban from the Winter Olympics for doping.

With Russia's national Olympic committee now banished from the Olympic Games because of serious doping violations, only Russian athletes with no history of doping were invited to compete as Olympic athletes from Russia.

"This won't win us any extra credit", Russian delegation leader Stanislav Pozdnyakov told members of that country's media, per the AP.

The CAS ADD statement added: "The athlete has accepted a provisional suspension beyond the period of the Games and reserved his rights to seek the elimination or reduction of any period of ineligibility based on "no fault or negligence" following the conclusion of the Games".

Russian sports officials here were not immediately available for comment.

Second, Sergeeva probably regrets the "I don't do doping" sweatshirt she wore in a video for the Russian Olympic Committee that is posted on YouTube. Wrong, these are Russians we're talking about. He said he had spoken with Sergeeva. Which is to say, you have two options: 6 a.m or 8 p.m.
