MOSCOW, August 20 (R-Sport) – European Greco-Roman bronze medalist Ruslan Belkhoroev has been suspended for two years for violating anti-doping rules, Russia's Anti-Doping Agency said Tuesday.
Belkhoroev, 26, failed a drug test at the Russian national championships on May 25 in St. Petersburg. He won bronze at the championships, but it was not immediately known what will become of his medal.
The suspension runs through June 2015, meaning he will miss two world championships, next month's in Budapest next and next year's in Tashkent.
Belkhoroev, who claimed bronze at the 2008 European wrestling championships in the 66kg category, is the seventh Russian wrestler suspended for doping since January.
