At the 1997 World Championships in Athletics, Olimpiada Ivanova was stripped of her silver medal in the 10 kilometer walk and banned for two years after testing positive for Stanozolol. Shot putter Vita Pavlysh was stripped of her gold medal at the 1999 IAAF World Indoor Championships after testing positive for this drug and was later stripped of her 2004 IAAF World Indoor Championships title in Budapest, Hungary five years later for the same reason and banned from athletics for life.
