Former RusAF officials banned for four years in Lysenko case

(Reuters) - A disciplinary tribunal has upheld all charges against five former Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF) officials, including former RusAF president Dmitry Shlyakhtin, in the investigation into high jumper Danil Lysenko, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) said on Wednesday.

The AIU said former RusAF board member Artur Karamyan was also guilty of tampering, complicity, failing to report an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) and failing to co-operate with the AIU investigation and the former officials were banned for four years.
