The International Olympics Committee (IOC) declared that Turkish olympic athlete Gülcan Mıngır’s blood and urine samples from the London 2012 Olympics tested positive for doping.
As the appeal process was finalized, the IOC annulled Mıngır’s time in the 3,000 meters steeplechase and her 27th place in the run.
Turkish Athletics Federation (TAF) Chair Fatih Çintimar noted that Mıngır’s case proved a point vis-a-vis their anti-doping campaigns since 2014.
“This just shows that doping doesn’t get you anywhere. Even after eight years, you’ll still get caught, just like we’ve been telling kids for years.”
Mıngır had quit competing in sports in 2013.
