The official statement of the ROC
Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) confirmed it has received documents from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) notifying that following a cross checking of doping samples taken during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing 14 Russian athletes in three sports disciplines were found to be doping positive.
In this context, the ROC will soon inform the IOC who of the athletes listed in the letter will be present during unsealing and analysis of B samples. Representatives from the ROC will be present during this procedure as observers.
In conformity with the anti-doping rules of the IOC and the World Anti-Doping Code, the names of athletes are not made public until the results of the B sample unsealing are announced and the official disciplinary procedure is launched.
