Chicherova loses bronze medal, keeps gold…

Russian high jumper Anna Chicherova has been stripped of her Beijing 2008 bronze medal for doping, but keeps her London 2012 gold. The 34-year-old is one of 98 athletes caught by the International Olympic Committee’s recent re-analysis of doping samples from the Beijing and London Games. Russia’s 2004 Olympic champion Yelena Slesarenko could be handed the bronze, although she would also need her samples re-analyzed.
