CAS disqualified Russian wrestler Gadisov for 4 years for doping

RUSADA unsuccessfully tried to appeal the disqualification, the athlete’s World Championship silver was revoked

Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, Switzerland, decided to disqualification Russian freestyle wrestler Abdusalam Gadisov for a period of 4 years for consumption doping.

The athlete’s doping test, taken on August 6, 2015, initially gave a negative result. However, it was placed in long-term storage, and a recheck by the Lausanne laboratory, carried out in 2020, showed an unfavorable test result for dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, an anabolic-androgenic steroid banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Later, the RUSADA anti-doping committee found Gadisov not guilty and tried to appeal the decision to CAS. Having considered the case, the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled: to find the wrestler guilty of doping and to cancel all his results from August 6, 2015 to August 5, 2019.

Until 2015, Gadisov became world champion (2014) and twice European champion. At the 2015 World Championships in Las Vegas, America, he won a silver medal, which has now been annulled. United World Wrestling (the international federation of Greco-Roman wrestling, freestyle wrestling and women’s wrestling) will redistribute the medals of the mentioned world championship in the weight category up to 97 kilograms.

Let us remind you that last week the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) upheld sanctions against Russia for non-compliance with the anti-doping code.

In particular, it was noted that the Russian agency RUSADA did not eliminate inconsistencies with local legislation. Earlier, the Russian Federation adopted a law that allows the national agency to establish its own anti-doping rules. WADA, therefore, did not restore Russian representation in rights.
