Top Uzbek Wrestler Deprived of 2008 Olympic Gold Medal

The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) has dismissed the freestyle wrestler Artur Taymazov’s appeal against depriving him of the gold medal of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing.
One of the most titled sportsmen in the history of freestyle wrestling Taymazov, who wrestles for the national team of Uzbekistan, had commented on the decision of the CAS to uphold the verdict of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) about depriving him of the gold medal of the 2008 games. The verdict was issued because the prohibited medicine ‘turinabol’ was found in the athlete’s doping test, after rechecking.
“Of course, I was hoping for a triumph of justice, but this did not happen. My victory was clear, for my fans I will forever be a three-time Olympic champion, no matter what decisions are made regarding me, no matter what they say about me,” TASS quoted Taymazov as saying.
“It’s a pity that all this is decided by people who have not done any charging in life, which they cannot even imagine, through which the athlete goes to the top of Olympics. What they do with sports is simply inhumane,” he added.
In addition to the 2008 Olympics, Taymazov won gold at the 2004 and 2012 Olympics in Athens and London, as well as silver in Sydney 2000.
