"Silver" achievement Olga Pyleva broke on dope

February 16 2006

In Turin, was caught doping at the Russian Olga Pyleva. Earlier in the five days of competition removed a group of athletes, among whom were Russians. The most offensive that Olga has recently won the silver medals at the Olympics. Now, under IOC rules Russian woman to pay back a medal (on the imminence of such a punishment stated Head of Legal Department OCD Alexander Brilliantova). In addition, she faces a long disqualification. The last hope was the fact that it's still a mistake. But after opening the sample "B" all hopes were dashed.

Meanwhile, yesterday held a teleconference from Moscow to Turin, to discuss just the problem of doping. On the one hand and the other in the teleconference was attended by people directly associated with such a problem as doping: Nikolai Durmanov (Head of Russian Anti-Doping Services Rossport), Stanislav Dmitriev (physician teams) and others.

Immediately the question arose about the doping control of our medalists. Head of Anti-Doping Agency, said: "None of that is not insured. God forbid that we would have passed this cup. " But, unfortunately, did not pass ....

In the body of Russians have found traces of the substance carphedon, which is contained in the product "Fenotropil. Meanwhile, the dangers of this drug for athletes in December, reported Director of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Anti-doping Center Gregory Rodchenko.

"Actually, the fact of registration of the drug" Fenotropil "There is nothing wrong with it medical device used in the treatment of various diseases - said Gregory Rodchenko. - The problem is that the instructions embedded in the medication is written like this: It is recommended for athletes to accelerate the processes of reconstruction and combat fatigue. But "Fenotropil" - none other than the drug carphedon, listed by the World Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited substances. Finding it in the body of athletes leads to disqualification for a period of two years.

And, unfortunately, we have already faced the consequences of improper and even criminal advertising Schelkovskogo vitamin factory. Athlete of one of the Russian teams in game sports use "Fenotropil" on the advice of a doctor, was convicted of doping - and disqualified. Unfortunately, attempts to talk with the heads of the plant nor to no avail. They say that "Fenotropil is not included in the list of banned drugs. And the absolute respective structural formulas "Fenotropil and carphedon categorically deny that, although our studies prove that fact absolutely."

Emphasize that the warning was made in late December!

The situation was commented the president of the Russian Biathlon Union Alexander Tikhonov.

"The result is the result. We have worked with athletes, warned all the thousand and one times. Heal only that which is in the team and only our doctors. Where, in January came from a doctor who had undertaken to cure a particulate damage to the ankle, the mind does not App. As president of the Russian Biathlon Union liability from itself is not removed, but I do not understand such things.

Because of an ankle injury Olga missed one World Cup, but the Olympics came in great shape. And only here, we learned that was the doctor who dealt with the treatment of our athletes in their own way, in Krasnoyarsk.

Can not find an explanation, when people say warned!I am sure that this is a harmless drug, which speeds up the healing of injuries and did not allow for faster running speed, increase endurance. But we must note that we are talking about our ignorance and irresponsibility. "

Yes, of course, the doctor made a mistake. Surprising one - during a teleconference from Moscow to Turin has repeatedly pointed out that before the Olympics all the athletes were subjected to scrutiny for doping ....
