    The IWF reports that as a consequence of the International Olympic Committee’s re-analysis program in connection with the 2012 London Olympic Games, the urine sample of the following Athlete has returned Adverse Analytical Finding:

    Mr Endri Karina (ALB) – metabolites of Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone metabolites (S1.1a Exogenous Anabolic Androgenic Steroids)
    Unbelievably, he is the 8th positive from that 94kg class!

    Obviously Nike. What impact would Russia have? Less tourism or something? Less exports, because of some sportsmen doping? Who cares?
    Also in legal terms, Russia can't really be prosecuted in that way, but Nike could be.

    African Champs is an international event, so Egypt could be excluded completely from the Tokyo Olympic Games (if that is the recommendation of the Independent Panel):

    Should three (3) or more Anti-Doping Rule Violations sanctioned by IWF or Anti-Doping Organisations other than a Member Federation or its National Anti-Doping Organisation be committed by Athletes or other Persons affiliated to such Member Federation (MF)/NOC during the qualification period of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the Independent Panel appointed by IWF as per the IWF ADP (the Independent Panel) may

    i. withdraw the quota place(s) from that MF/NOC with regard to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and/or

    ii. suspend that MF/NOC from participation in the ensuing Olympic Games. If such Member Federation is permitted to participate with Athletes in eligible events during the qualification period to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, its Athletes shall not be permitted to secure any IWF Absolute Ranking Points (World and/or Continental) at such event and their participation shall not affect the Member Federation’s exclusion from the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

    Five at once (again) is really unexpected to me.

    Iran next?

    This sport won't recover for the foreseeable future.

    Egypt is already banned:

    There was no reasoning given so commentary assumed it was because of the three year old cases.
    It seems more likely the contemporary positives are the actual issue.

    I appreciate the clarification. When I was in Pattaya there was some confusion about whether they’d been suspended from only the 2019 World Champs or for a longer period.
