Final decision


Russian shot putter Yevgeniya Smirnova will get the bronze medal of the World Junior Championships.

The Superior Tribunal of Sports Justice (STJD) and the Brazilian Athletics Confederation (CBAt) meeting on Tuesday decided to uphold the decision of the Disciplinary Commission (National CDN) in case of world junior shot put champion Geisa Arcanjo.

On 22 March, the CDN has decided to punish the athlete with a warning that on July 20, 2010, in doping control carried out during the World Youth in the Canadian city of Moncton, had tested positive for the banned substance hydrochlorothiazide. Warning remains the ban in the case that means she will lose the gold medal, but can compete. So far she was not competing in 2011.

So, China’s Qianqian Meng will become the champion, Shuang Cui will get the silver medal, and Russia’s Yevgeniya Smirnova will get the bronze medal.
