Estonia Olympic champion suspected of doping
Question of the Day
TALLINN, Estonia (AP) - Retired Olympic cross-country ski champion Kristina Smigun-Vahi is suspected of doping at the 2006 Winter Games in Turin, the Estonian Olympic Committee said Saturday.
In a statement Friday, Smigun-Vahi confirmed that her sample had come under new suspicion but denied ever using banned substances.
Smigun-Vahi is Estonia’s most successful female cross-country skier. She won two gold medals in Turin - in the 10K classical race and the 15K skiathlon.
The IOC said it won’t release the results until after the Sochi Olympics once “the full doping control process is completed.”
“All of the samples, every last one, were clean (during testing in 2006),” she said. “They had to be, because I have never used any banned substances. It’s unbelievable, but today I’ve been placed in a situation where I have to fight a new battle.”
