IOC clears Shokhina of doping charge

Doha: Russian ice hockey player Anna Shokhina has been cleared of wrongdoing by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Disciplinary Commission following an investigation into alleged doping at Sochi 2014. 

But six of Shokhina's team-mates on the Russian women's ice hockey squad at the 2014 Winter Olympics - Inna Dyubanok, Ekaterina Lebedeva, Ekaterina Pashkevich, Anna Shibanova, Ekaterina Smolentseva and Galina Skiba have been sanctioned.

They have all been disqualified from Sochi 2014 and banned from competing at all future editions of the Olympic Games.

The sanctions mean the entire Russian ice hockey team has been disqualified and their sixth-place result at the Games annulled.
