New Positive Tests for Russian Athletes

Three Russian weightlifters, who were already under investigation for doping, have tested positive for banned drugs according to the IWF.

Nadezda Evstyukhina, Oleg Chen and David Bedzhanyan all gave samples that tested positive for the same metabolite of an anabolic steroid.

4-chloro-18-nor-17b-hydroxymethyl, 17a-methyl-5aandrost-13-en-3a-ol is produced in the body as it metabolises Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, a banned anabolic steroid.
