Rosa Khutor: The Ukrainian cross-country skier Marina Lisogor has tested positive for a banned substance, the country’s National Olympic Committee said on Saturday.
“The International Olympic Committee’s disciplinary commission officially informed the Ukrainian NOC on Saturday that the Ukrainian cross-country skier Marina Lisogor was tested positive for the substance trimetazidine, included into the forbidden substances’ list since January 1, 2014,” the IOC said in a statement.
“Marina Lisogor gave her explanation at the Disciplinary Commission meeting that she took the drug product ‘Preductal’ not knowing that it consists the forbidden ingredient.”
On Friday, German biathlete Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle and Italian bobsledder William Frullani had both failed dope tests.(reuters)
