Russian Relay Team Stripped of 2012 Olympic Silver

A sample provided by London 2012 Olympic Games 4x400m relay silver medal winner, Antonina Krivoshapka, has tested positive for the banned steroid turinabol.

Four hundred and ninety-two samples have now been re-analysed since London 2012 and the International Olympic Committee has stated that there are "likely to be more confirmed adverse analytical findings in the coming weeks and months as the re-analysis programme continues".

Jamaica and Ukraine are expected to be promoted to silver and bronze respectively.
