The world champion in wrestling from Sweden Jenny Fransson is disqualified for 4 years for violation of anti-doping rules.
Fransson tested positive for the anabolic steroid methyltestosterone. The 32-year-old athlete has been suspended since January 28, 2020. Thus, she will be able to return to the sport after January 27, 2024.
It is reported that the Swedish woman intends to appeal the decision to suspend. Fransson claims that the substance entered her body by mistake, and the laboratory in Sweden testing her sample did not follow WADA Protocol.
Fransson is the 2012 world champion, with a 2019 world Cup silver and three European Championships awards (1-0-2) to her credit. At the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, she won bronze in the 69 kg weight category.
Canada has called on the IOC to allow political protests at the Olympic games
The canadian center for ethics in sport has called on the international Olympic Committee (IOC) to allow political protests at the Olympic and Paralympic games.

The idea to abolish the rule arose against the background of protests against racial discrimination, which are now taking place in many countries around the world.
IOC chief Thomas Bach said he should discuss the idea with the organization’s athletes ‘ Commission.
