Caster Semenya got a step closer to becoming a double Olympic and world champion after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled Russian athlete Mariya Savinova be stripped of her gold medals from the London 2012 Olympic Games and 2011 World Championships.
The retroactive four-year penalty starts from August 24, 2015, but CAS also disqualified all Savinova's results from July 26, 2010, to August 19, 2013, thereby stripping her of her 2011 World Championships gold, 2013 world silver and 2010 European gold.
2, Alexandra Brilliantova, the head of the ROC's Legal Department, said that none of the Russian 2008 and 2012 Olympians, who were disqualified by the IOC after two rounds of doping re-tests, had returned their medals as it is required by the Olympic Charter.
Alexei Melnikov, a long-distance running and race walking coach, was banned for life previous year, while Vladimir Kazarin remains suspended pending the results of an investigation. The South African won gold in the 800m at the Rio Games and now stands to be upgraded to gold after finishing second to Savinova in London.

Mariya Savinova has been banned from athletics until 2019 after she was found guilty of doping for over three years. Yvonne Hak of the Netherlands is in line for the 2010 European title.
In November 2015, Savinova was one of five Russian athletes the World Anti-Doping Agency recommended should receive a lifetime ban.
Savinova's ruling is just the latest black eye for the Russian Athletics Federation, Russia's running team, which was banned as team from the 2016 Olympics. How should it go differently? "It takes less than 20 days".
"However, Savinova-Farnosova probably will appeal".
