According to Vladimir Mokhnev, former coach of whistleblower Yuliya Stepanova, has been banned for 10 years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

The decision was announced on the 23rd of December 2016.

Insidethegames further reports: “Mokhnev has been found guilty of violating the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) rules relating to possession, trafficking and administration of banned substances and/or methods.”

This decision is a kind of late gratification for the courage of Yuliya and Vitaly as it proves the story of systematic doping they have revealed.
