Krivelyova under doping probe

Former world and Olympic shot put champion Svetlana Krivelyova is being investigated by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) over a possible breach of doping rules at the 2004 Athens Games where she won bronze. Valentin Balakhnichyov, president of the Russian athletics federation (VFLA), said Krivelyova was aware of the probe.

The IOC is set to discuss potential doping cases from the 2004 Games at its executive board meeting in Lausanne next week, according to an Olympic movement source.

Krivelyova was awarded the bronze medal in the women's shot put in Athens after her Russian team-mate Irina Korzhanenko was stripped of her gold after failing a drugs test for the anabolic steroid stanozolol.
