The FIS Doping Panel found Cross-Country skier Sergey Shiryaev (RUS) to
have committed an anti-doping rule violation contrary to Articles 2.1 of
the FIS Anti-Doping Rules. He tested positive for the use of the
Prohibited Substance Erythropoietin (EPO), identified on the WADA
Prohibited List 2007 in Class S2 Hormones and related Substances during
a doping control on 21st February 2007 in Sapporo (JPN).

For a first-time violation, the athlete was sanctioned to a two-year
period of ineligibility. The period of ineligibility commences as from
the date of the publication and communication of this decision to the
Russian Ski Association on 28th May 2007 with credit for the period of
provisional suspension from 4th March 2007 to 27th May 2007. The athlete
is therefore ineligible to participate in any capacity in an event or
activity authorized or organized by FIS or any National Ski Association
from 28th May 2007 until 4th March 2009 and his results shall be
annulled from the date on which the Prohibited Substance was found.

Although it is not a requirement of the FIS Anti-Doping Rules that the
member National Ski Association enters into proceedings in an
international doping case, the Russian Ski Association has chosen to do
so in this case. Their enquiries led to sanctions against two coaches
Alexander Bazajchenko and Anatoly Tchepalov in addition to the athlete.
Since these decisions conform to the regulations of the FIS Anti-Doping
Rules that are compiled in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code,
the FIS Doping Panel sees no reason to change these decisions.

As a result, the FIS Doping Panel noted that given the prompt and
thorough actions of the Russian Ski Association and the Russian Ski
Cross-Country Federation, both should be recognized for their efforts
for doping-free sport.

Secondly, the FIS Doping Panel found Cross-Country skiers Andrey
Kondryshev (KAZ) and Yevgeniy Koschevoy (KAZ) to have committed an
anti-doping rule violation contrary to Article 2.1 of the FIS
Anti-Doping Rules. Both tested positive for the use of the Prohibited
Substance Testosterone, identified on the WADA Prohibited List 2007 in
Class S1b Endogenous Anabolic Androgenic Steroids, during a WADA
out-of-competition doping control on 12th February 2007 in Otaki (JPN).

The sanction for a first doping violation is two (2) years’
ineligibility. The period of ineligibility commences as from the date of
the publication and communication of this decision to the Kazakhstan Ski
Association on 28th May 2007 with credit for the period of provisional
suspension from 27th April 2007 to 27th May 2007. The athletes are
therefore ineligible to participate in any capacity in an event or
activity authorized or organized by FIS or any National Ski Association
from 28th May 2007 until 27th April 2009 in accordance with Art. 10.9.
In accordance with Article 10.7, the athletes’ results shall be annulled
from the date on which the Prohibited Substance was found.

Finally, the FIS Doping Panel found Cross-Country skier Ruslan Ochilov
(KAZ) to have committed an anti-doping rule violation contrary to
Articles 2.1 of the FIS Anti-Doping Rules. He tested positive for the
use of the Prohibited Substance Norandrosteron (Nandrolone), identified
on the WADA Prohibited List 2007 in Class S1 Anabolic Agents, at a
doping control during the FIS Junior World Ski Championships on 13th
March 2007 in Tarvisio (ITA).

For a first-time violation, the athlete was sanctioned for a two-year
period of ineligibility from 28th May 2007 until 27th April 2009 and his
results shall be annulled from the date on which the Prohibited
Substance was found.

The FIS Doping Panel expressed its serious concern regarding the cases
of the athletes from Kazakhstan. It is apparent that the Kazakhstan Ski
Association is not facing its responsibilities related to anti-doping.
Of particular concern is the positive case of a junior athlete
(Ochilov).

Following review of the circumstances of the cases, the FIS Council
decided to sanction the Kazakhstan Ski Association for its role in the
cases of Andrey Kondryshev, Yevgeniy Koschevoy and Ruslan Ochilov (KAZ)
with a fine of CHF 10’000 per athlete, totalling CHF 30’000 in FIS
financial support. The remainder of all funds of the Kazakhstan Ski
Association are also suspended until the Association demonstrates it is
properly undertaking its role and obligations with anti-doping work.
