    Default Olympic Hall of Shame



    Olympians who were stripped of medals

    It's every athlete's dream to win a medal at the Olympic Games, not only for individual glory but also for that of their country's. It is also a reward for an athlete's dedication, blood, sweat and tears. The sportpersons in this list won medals at the Summer Olympic Games, only to have it stripped later for no one's fault but theirs.

    Ben Johnson: The Canadian sprinter won the gold in the 100 metres in a world record time of 9.79 seconds at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. However, Johnson's urine samples were found to contain stanozolol, and he was disqualified three days later. He later admitted having used steroids when he ran his 1987 world record, which caused the IAAF to rescind that record as well. Johnson attempted a comeback in 1991 after his suspension ended; but in January 1993, he was found guilty of doping at a race in Montreal - this time for excess testosterone - and was subsequently banned for life by the IAAF.

    • Andreea Raducan competed at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, where she contributed heavily to the Romanian gymnastic team's gold medal and won an individual silver medal on the vault. She also won the all-around title, but was disqualified and stripped of her gold medal shortly after the competition concluded, when it was revealed that she had failed doping controls, testing positive for pseudoephedrine, at the time a banned substance.

    • Cian O'Connor: The Irish equestrian won a show jumping gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics, which was later stripped from him due to drug offences. His horse 'Waterford Crystal' had tested positive for a prohibited substance. And, though components of the 'B' sample were stolen, it also tested positive for prohibited, but not performance-enhancing, substances, which had been prescribed to the horse some time earlier.

    • Marion Jones won five medals at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, but forfeited all medals and prizes dating back to September 2000 after her October 2007 admission that she took performance-enhancing drugs as far back as the 2000 Summer Olympics, and that she had lied about it to a grand jury investigating performance-enhancer creations by Victor Conte and the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (aka BALCO).

    Swedidsh Greco-Roman wrestler Ara Abrahamian a silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in the 84 kg weight class; he also won the bronze match at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Though Abrahamian was awarded the medal, his medal was rejected because of a controversial ruling in the semifinal. During the highly publicised medal ceremony, Abrahamian protested by placing the medal in the centre of the mat and walking away. He was later disqualified by the International Olympic Committee and stripped of his rejected bronze medal for disrupting the award ceremony.

    Former Ukrainian heptathlete Lyudmila Blonska was given a lifetime ban from competition after failing a drug test at the 2008 Summer Olympics, her second doping offense. At the 2008 Olympics, Blonska won silver in the women's heptathlon, but she was disqualified and lost her medal after she tested positive for the anabolic steroid methyltestosterone. She had qualified for the long jump final, but the International Olympic Committee decided to throw her out of the Games completely. Blonska was banned for two years in May 2002 after she tested positive for steroids at the European Championships.
