5 Russian weightlifters face new wave of doping charges


MOSCOW (AP) — Five Russian weightlifters, all of them world or European championship medalists, face doping charges which could herald a new wave of cases across a range of sports.

The International Weightlifting Federation said Tuesday that evidence against the five lifters, including Olympic bronze medalist Ruslan Albegov, comes from new investigations by the World Anti-Doping Agency into widespread drug use in Russian sports.

“This important development shows justice being brought to those that may have cheated their sport,” WADA told The Associated Press in e-mailed comments Tuesday.

“The Agency awaits more such announcements from federations that have commenced results management on the basis of evidentiary packages provided by WADA.”
