The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) may disqualify for one year Ukraine and three other countries.

Today it became known that the doping tests for 15 athletes during the rechecking of samples from the 2008 Beijing Olympics gave a positive result. Among them are Ukrainian Natalia Davydova (bronze in the category up to 69 kg) and Olga Korobka (silver in the category over 75 kg).

According to the IWF Executive Board, the federation of the country can be disqualified for one year in the case of three or more positive doping tests from the Games in 2008 and 2012 after a cross-check.

Thus, except for Ukraine may be suspended China, Turkey and Azerbaijan.
