Kuksenkov tests positive for Meldonium

Amanda Turner:

New national champion Nikolai Kuksenkov has withdrawn from the Russian men’s championships in Penza after it was revealed he tested positive for the banned substance meldonium. …

According to Russian coach and spokeswoman Valentina Rodionenko, Kuksenkov’s test was conducted two weeks ago but the results were only just discovered. …

I can say that on the Russian national team in gymnastics we stopped using the drug even in August 2015! Then the representatives of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency consulted with our doctors, and then withdrew all the supplies of Mildronate from our first-aid kits. …
