Based on “evidence arising from the investigations conducted by Prof. McLaren and the WADA Intelligence & Investigations department”, the IWF announced that it opened investigations against Oleg Chen, Ruslan Albegov, Egor Klimonov, Tima Turieva and David Bedzhanyan.
Update 17.08.2019: The latest public disclosure add Dmitry Lapikov, Chingiz Mogushkov, Adam Maligov, Magomed Abuev, Maksim Sheyko, Yuliya Konovalova and Nadezhda Evstyukhina to the list.
They have been charged for violations of Article 2.2 of the IWF Anti-Doping Policy, which states:
2.2 Use or Attempted Use by an Athlete of a Prohibited Substance or a Prohibited
[Comment to Article 2.2: It has always been the case that Use or Attempted Use of a Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method may be established by any reliable means. As noted in the Comment to Article 3.2, unlike the proof required to establish an anti-doping rule violation under Article 2.1, Use or Attempted Use may also be established by other reliable means such as admissions by the Athlete, witness statements, documentary evidence, conclusions drawn from longitudinal profiling, including data collected as part of the Athlete Biological Passport, or other analytical information which does not otherwise satisfy all the requirements to establish “Presence” of a Prohibited Substance under Article 2.1.
For example, Use may be established based upon reliable analytical data from the analysis of an A Sample (without confirmation from an analysis of a B Sample) or from the analysis of a B Sample alone where the Anti-Doping Organization provides a satisfactory explanation for the lack of confirmation in the other Sample.]
