Lausanne, 15 July 2016 – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has dismissed the appeal filed by the Russian weightlifter Alexei Lovchev against a decision issued by the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) on 13 May 2016 in which a four-year period of ineligibility was imposed on the athlete, and his results at the 2015 IWF World Championships were cancelled, further to an anti-doping rule infraction (positive anti-doping test for ipamorelin, a growth hormone releasing peptide).

Accordingly, the IWF decision is confirmed in full.
