Four medallists from the 2004 Olympic Games were officially stripped of their medals yesterday by the International Olympic Committee

The IOC took the decision after new analysis of their dope tests taken at the Athens Games revealed traces of steroids.

Ukraine’s Yuri Belonog was stripped of his shot put gold medal, Belarus Ivan Tikhon of his silver in the hammer, and the Belarus duo Irina Yatchenko and Svetlana Krivelyova lost their bronze medals in the women’s discus and shot put respectively.
