Two Rio 2016 athletes to lose medals for doping
9 December 2016
The Court of Arbitration for Sport says a Russian boxer and Romanian weightlifter will lose medals from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics after failing doping tests at the games.
Misha Aloian won a flyweight silver medal in a bout on the final day of the Olympics in August and tested positive for the banned stimulant tuaminoheptane.
Gabriel Sincraian, who won bronze in the men's 85-kilogram weightlifting, tested positive for exogenous testosterone.

A number of athletes were deemed ineligible to compete at the Rio 2016 Games following doping offences. Many of those stemmed from the IOC's reanalysis programme which has so far handed out doping sanctions to 88 athletes from the Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Olympic Games.
