A temporary suspension issued in late May has become official, as Russia has suspended Olga Klyuchnikova for 6 months, dating back to May 27th, according to the Russian Anti-Doping organization RUSADA.
Klyuchinkova tested positive on May 16th at the Russian National Championships, a meet at which she placed 4th in the 50 back in 29.17 and 8th in the 100 back in 1:03.00.
The substance for which Klyuchinkoa tested positive still has not been released by RUSADA – whose Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee handed out the suspension.
Klyuchinkova earned a bronze medal as the butterflier on Russia’s 200 medley relay at the 2009 European Short Course Championships. She was also on Russia’s 2009 World Championships team and 2011 World University Games team.
