The International Olympic Committee (IOC) today announced that it has disqualified Uzbek wrestler Soslan Tigiev from the men's 74kg freestyle wrestling event during the Games of the XXX Olympiad in London, where he placed third.
Immediately after his participation in the event on 10 August, Tigiev, 29, provided a urine sample that tested positive for the prohibited substance methylhexaneamine.
Upon considering the recommendations of the IOC Disciplinary Commission, composed for this case of Thomas Bach (Chairman), Denis Oswald and GÃ¶ran Petersson, the IOC Executive Board decided that Soslan Tigiev shall have his medal, diploma and medallist pin in the above-noted event withdrawn.
The third place would be reallocated to Gabor Hatos of Hungary.
