The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) said today that Five Russian weightlifters, including a 2012 Olympic bronze medallist, have been provisionally suspended after doping tests on samples recovered from the Moscow lab.

 
Ruslan Albegov who took a London Games bronze in the plus 105 kilo category and won back-to-back world titles in the next two years, was suspended along with women's minus 63 kilo 2013 world champion Tima Turieva.


Also provisionally banned were David Bedzhanyan, Oleg Chen and Egor Klimanov. 

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said in April it had retrieved 2,262 samples from Moscow's former drug-testing laboratory. Last month, WADA said that some 300 Russian athletes suspected of doping had been identified and added that the data of 43 had been sent to the relevant federations.
