Moscow – The Russian anti-doping agency has provisionally suspended three swimmers and two cyclists for positive tests at national championships last month.

The agency says all five are “suspended from participating in any capacity in a training camp or competition until the decision has been rendered on the case.”

Swimmers Igor Akhlyustin, Mikhail Dovgalyuk and Anton Komlev returned positive tests for doping at the nationals in Moscow.

Cyclists Andrey Russkikh and Ekaterina Koroleva tested positive at the junior track nationals in St. Petersburg.

Rusada did not identify the doping substances involved in the cases. – Sapa-AP
