    What ever happened with Norik's Positive test from 2012 Olympics?

    I never really looked into it much but I know he got popped for T-bol in London after the retest from 2012 Olympics. Did this effect any of his results from post 2012? Did USAWeightlifting ever sanction him based on this information? Just curious what the outcome was from this situation.

    First of all USA Weightlifting does not have results management or sanctioning authority in doping related cases. Only USADA in the USA, or alternatively the IWF Anto Doping Commission.

    Additionally since the athlete was of Armenia at the time, it is treated as an Armenian case.

    In this case, the IOC has closed the case (withdrawal of results), and the matter is now with the IWF Anti Doping Commission to finalize any sanction.

    It was some around where you could see his statement in a pdf, Sean. Basically threw himself at the mercy of the court besides the fact that he has tested clean in the US in recent years.
