Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) --
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has disqualified Uzbek wrestler Soslan Tigiev from the men’s 74kg freestyle wrestling event during the Games of the XXX Olympiad in London, where he placed third.
Immediately after his participation in the event on 10 August, Tigiev, 29, provided a urine sample that tested positive for the prohibited substance methylhexaneamine.
Upon considering the recommendations of the IOC Disciplinary Commission, composed for this case of Thomas Bach (Chairman), Denis Oswald and Göran Petersson, the IOC Executive Board decided to disqualify Soslan Tigiev from the men’s 74kg freestyle wrestling event, where he took the third place.
Soslan Tigiev is excluded from the Games of the XXX Olympiad in London in 2012. The commission also withdrew his medal, diploma and medallist pin.
It is noted that FILA considers that, in accordance with its rules, the third place would be reallocated to Gabor Hatos of Hungary. As a consequence, the IOC administration is instructed to reallocate the medal, diploma and medallist pin accordingly.
