Valeriy BORCHIN - Russia - 2009 World 20km Walk "Champion" (annulled-drugs)

On 20 January 2015 Borchin was disqualified for 8 years starting from 15 October 2012

and all his results between 14 July 2009 and 15 September 2009, between 16 June 2011

and 27 September 2011 as well as between 11 April 2012 and 3 September 2012

(which include two world championship golds) were annulled.

 

On 25 March 2015 the IAAF filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration in Lausanne, Switzerland,

questioning the selective disqualification of the suspension periods of the six athletes involved

including Borchin.

On March 24, 2015, the court rules all of his marks from August 14, 2009 to October 15, 2012

were also disqualified.
