    That strategy has been used before to “win” youth and junior medals.

    The only validation that the IWF does for birthdates is checking what is printed in the front page of an athlete’s passport.

    Hudson popped again for a different substance. Latest was turinabol, prior in 2015 was stanozolol.

    The first time I saw Rezazadeh was 2004 and knowing nothing about WL then I assumed the sport was mostly for older men, like late 30s, early 40s. In reality he was 26 in Athens.

    The recent Thai positives were indeed from Ashgabat. And of course this will not affect them hosting the next WWC, because why should it...

    Also, it seems like Armenia - by way of Daluzyan - just crossed the line to 20 sanctions since Beijing; down to 1+1.

    With decisions from December and January, RUSADA banned Antoniy Savchuk for 6 months and Magomed Abuev for 4 years. Both were good SHW lifters. Also two other nobodies for 4 years as well.

    Thailand's recent WWC champs all positive.

    If confirmed, this also means THA is banned from Tokyo.

    This is what I came to post. Someone is getting fired for messing up their testing and timing window.

    Going thru the THA bans (positives) now.

    I scroll down (because there are so many), I'm just now seeing the Iouv positive; missed that earlier.
    Is that 3 or 4 positives, spread out over 3 different countries?
