LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Yulia Zaripova, the Russian gold medalist in the womens 3,000-meter steeplechase at the 2012 London Olympics, was among 12 more athletes sanctioned Monday after testing positive in a reanalysis of their doping samples.Zaripova was among seven medalists -- all from countries of the former Soviet Union -- disqualified retroactively from the London Games after their stored samples were retested with improved techniques and came back positive for banned substances.Also sanctioned Monday by the International Olympic Committee were nine weightlifters, a hammer thrower and a long jumper.Zaripova tested positive for the steroid turinabol on a urine sample she provided after winning the steeplechase final on Aug. 6, 2012, the IOC said.Zaripova was already expected to lose the gold medal over a separate doping violation prosecuted by the IAAF. She had previously served a 2+-year ban for irregularities in her biological passport. As a result of that violation, the Court of Arbitration for Sport had disqualified all of her results from July 2011 to July 2013, including the London Olympics.A three-person IOC disciplinary commission said in its ruling that a decision in Zaripovas case has already been issued and has become final and binding and there is no longer any interest to continue the present proceedings and to issue a decision.The panel recommended that the IOC implement the IAAF decision to amend the Olympic results and strip Zaripova of the gold medal. Under the revised results, Habiba Ghribi of Tunisia takes the gold, with Sofia Assefa of Ethiopia moving to silver and Milcah Chemos Cheywa of Kenya the bronze.Other athletes stripped of London medals on Monday were: Alexander Ivanov, Russia, silver, mens 94-kilogram weightlifting division; Natliya Zabolotnaya, Russia, silver, womens 75kg weightlifting; Cristina Iovu, Moldova, bronze, womens 53kg weightlifting; Hripsime Khurshudyan, Armenia, bronze, womens 75kg weightlifting; Irina Kulesha, Belarus, bronze, womens 75kg weightlifting; and Anatoli Ciricu, Moldova, bronze, mens 94kg weightlifting.The non-medalists were Andrei Demanov, Russia, fourth place, mens 94kg weightlifting; Oleksandr Dryhol, Ukraine, 34th place, mens hammer throw; Rauli Tsirekidze, Georgia, ninth place, 85kg weightlifting; Margaryta Tverdokhlib, Ukraine, 26th place, womens long jump; and Almas Uteshov, Kazakhstan, seventh place, mens 94kg weightlifting.The IOC reanalyzed more than 1,000 stored samples from the London Games and 2008 Beijing Games in order to catch cheats who escaped detection at the time. The new tests can detect the use of steroids going back weeks and months, rather than days.The IOC recorded at least 98 positive tests from the London and Beijing retesting program, with more expected in the pipeline. The IOC also plans to retest samples from the 2014 Sochi Winter Games after the former Russian lab director said samples were manipulated to cover up doping by Russian athletes.

Aaron Pryor, the relentless junior welterweight who fought two memorable bouts with Alexis Arguello, died Sunday. He was 60.Pryors family issued a statement saying the boxer died at his home in Cincinnati after a long battle with heart disease.Known as The Hawk, Pryor was a crowd favorite who fought with a frenetic style, rarely if ever taking a step backward. His fights in the early 1980s with Arguello , the great Nicaraguan champion, were both classics that are still talked about in boxing circles.But Pryor was a troubled champion, and his career would unravel because of an addiction to cocaine.He was very unorthodox and could throw punches from all kinds of angles with great hand speed, said former Associated Press boxing writer Ed Schuyler Jr. He was a great fighter, its too bad he didnt have more fights.Pryors widow, Frankie Pryor, said her husband -- who would later speak out about the evils of drugs -- also had a side most fans didnt know about.Aaron was known around the world as `The Hawk and delighted millions of fans with his aggressive and crowd-pleasing boxing style, she said in a statement announcing his death. But to our family he was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.Pryor was unbeaten in 31 fights when he and Arguello met in a 140-pound title clash in the Orange Bowl in Miami on Nov. 12, 1982. Arguello was a classic boxer-puncher considered one of the top pound-for-pound fighters, but Pryor would not back off as the two men traded punches for the better part of 14 rounds.Pryor finally wore Arguello down, stopping him in the 14th round with a flurry of punches. Ring Magazine later picked the bout as the Fight of the Decade.dddddddddddd.It was one of the best fights Ive ever seen, Schuyler said. Id put it in the top five.Pryors win was marred, though, by questions about a bottle wrapped in black tape that his corner man raised to his lips on several occasions between rounds in the fight. Many in boxing thought it contained stimulants, but the corner man, Artie Curley, said it was peppermint schnapps.Pryor would beat Arguello again the next September in Las Vegas, this time stopping him in the 10th round of their scheduled 15-round bout. Arguello went down in the round from a series of punches and declined to get back up.Arguello was a great fighter but he couldnt handle Pryor, Schuyler said. He could have gotten up, but what was the point?The second Arguello fight was the pinnacle of Pryors career. He became a heavy cocaine user, and fought only six more times in the next seven years, finishing his career with a record of 39-1 with 35 knockouts.I reached out and certain people did not give me their right hand, Pryor said later of his drug use. They gave me drugs.Pryor was named the Greatest Jr. Welterweight of the Century by The Associated Press, and was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1996. He would later travel the world making personal appearances and spreading his anti-drug message.Pryor is survived by his wife and partner of over a quarter of a century, Frankie Pryor, sons Aaron Pryor Jr. and Antwan Harris, daughter Elizabeth Wagner and three grandsons Adam, Austin and Aaron Pryor III.
