• British gold medalist & ‘sports icon’ implicated in blood doping

An indictment by French prosecutors against Lamine Diack, former President of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and his son, Papa Massata Diack, has alleged that British athletes, including a Gold medalist and ‘sports icon’, were involved in blood doping at the London 2012 Olympics. Journalists said the document reveals that Valentin Balakhnichev, former Treasurer of the Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF) and Vice President of the IAAF, spoke internally about abnormal blood values of several athletes at the London 2012 Olympics, including a British Gold Medalist, according to an email.
