Russian Olympians lose their medals ...

Russian Sergey Kirdyapkin is set to be stripped of the 50-km walk gold medal he won at the 2012 London Olympics after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld an appeal by theIAAF against the Russian anti-doping agency (RUSADA).

Two more Russian athletes are set to lose their London Games medals after the sport’s governing body (IAAF) appealed on six cases where they said RUSADA had been “selective” in annulling previous results of the athletes after they were banned for irregularities in their biological passports. CAS upheld all six appeals, which included London 2012 3,000 metres steeplechase champion Yuliya Zaripova, former Olympic champions Valery Borchin and Olga Kaniskina, 2011 world champion Sergei Bakulin and world silver medallist Vladimir Kanaykin.
