One very important find was this Report from Doping Committee copied on northeastboard in 2009:

” Report from Doping Committee
At the 2007 Worlds in Bulgaria ? We had 1 person test positive
DZAMBOLAT TSORIEV from Russia has been suspended for 2 years until December 31, 2009
At the 2008 European Championship in Norway
We had 3 people test positive
TIMUR BICHILOV Russia, OLGA GAVRILOVA, Russia and SOFIYA AKHMETGAREEVA, Russia.
They were all given 2 year suspension until August 31, 2010.
We do 20 tests at the World level and 30 tests at the European Level for a total of 50 tests per year. To date, we have done 200 tests and have had 15 positive.
7 from Russia
1 from Slovakia
1 from Brazil
2 from Latvia
1 from Romania
1 from Bulgaria
1 from Uzbekistan
1 from Ukraine
Please note that all tests are conducted by luck of the draw “

This report is very important because it talks about some doping cases from the past without giving the names, only the names of the countries. And if you follow the discussions from that topic you will see that even Engin Terzi never heard about anyone tested positive from those countries. This means that we still don’t know all the names, and I really tried to find them all.

This is not ok considering that according to the 2015 WADA Code (which is now in force): ” 10.13 Automatic Publication of Sanction A mandatory part of each sanction shall include automatic publication, as provided in Article 14.3. ”

Changelog / Update History:

UPDATE (08 March 2018): Jozsef Lovei was added to this table at 2016 EAC (you have to scroll down) because he was listed in the SANCTIONED ATHLETES table from waf-armwrestling.com. The used substance and the suspension period was updated for other athletes.

UPDATE (14 Feb. 2018): A new public disclosure regarding the doping at EUROARM 2017 (EAC 2017). Armando Garcia Rama took 2nd place in Master Men 70 kg Left and also 2nd place in Master Men 70 kg Right, see ► RESULTS: EUROARM 2017, 27th European Armwrestling Championships 2017. Armando Garcia Rama was added to this table.

UPDATE (19 JANUARY 2018): The suspension period for Sergey Bogoslovov was added from the Russian Armwrestling Federation website (click on the red links, Suspension Period / End of Sanction, to see the source). 3 NEW NAMES WERE ADDED TO THE LIST / TABLE FROM ► WORLDARM 2017 DOPING RESULTS, 39th World Armwrestling Championships 2017 (WAF)

UPDATE (24 JANUARY 2018): Aleksandr Fugarov was added to the list in 2010. Many thanks to Nick Boboc for the info. I searched on northeastboard and there was a doping case after WorldArm 2010, but the name was not made public – 2 threads from northeastboard where this was discussed by Simon Berriochoa: 1. 2010 WAF Test Results, 2. HELLOOO? Doping Result?

UPDATE (12 May 2017): Doping sanctions and the substances used by Gismat Vakilov and Niko Bajaladze were added to the table.

UPDATE (April 2017): Ľubomír JAGNEŠÁK and Peter KASAN were suspended for 15 months (22.7.2014 – 21.10.2015) by the Slovak Anti-Doping Agency (SADA) because they refused to provide information on the whereabouts. They were added to this list.

    1. Denis Cyplenkov did not compete in championships with doping tests. This is a list with armwrestlers that failed the doping test. Trust me, for each armwrestler who failed the doping test there are at least 10 who got away because they were never tested or because they used substances harder to be detected. That doesn’t mean I should put them here. And before you say anything, I want to remember you that I was the first one who pointed out this about Denis Cyplenkov (but it still doesn’t matter as long as he didn’t fail any doping test): http://www.xsportnews.com/armwrestling/denis-cyplenkov-does-not-use-the-hormone-since-november-2010/
