Radevich Sentenced to Two Years Disqualification / Day

Following repeated doping tests at the London Olympics, radiographs found traces of anabolic steroid oxandrolone in Radevich's analysis. Following the revelation, the former athlete subsequently resigned as president of the Latvian Athletics Association (LVS).

She was disqualified from the London Olympics in May this year, but has been disqualified for two years. After the London Olympics, Radevich entered the Diamond League at the highest level, but in the winter she announced the end of her career.

Radevic also has a two-year ban, which came into force on November 22 last year.

Radevich finished his sports career after the 2012 London Olympics, where he finished fourth, just inches short of the bronze medal, then reached 6.88 meters.

As a result, Russian Ludmila Kolchanova, who was only sixth in the race, will take fourth place for the 38-year-old Radevich at the London Olympics, but her compatriot Anna Nazarova, who was fifth, was previously disqualified. The former athlete also has to return the diploma and badge to the London Olympics.

Radevitz holds Latvia's long jump record, as she jumped 6.92 meters in Barcelona in 2010, after which she won the European Championship.

In early 2017, after being disqualified from competing for banned substances, Radevich became world champion in 2011, although she initially won bronze. Her medal at that time became the first prize for Latvia in the history of an independent country at the World Cup.
