    The case of Anastasia Shakun (ice dancer with Daniil Ragimov) is recent, in terms of decision being published (2 weeks ago)

    This is the full decision:

    She "forgot" she was taking a banned substance??? Oh come on. She's an athlete in a sport where she knows she will be tested for drugs. Don't you think it might be a good idea to know exactly which drugs are banned? You know, like BEFORE you take them? A one year ban is charitable.

    I understand your anger, but her situation is actually different. The drug she took wasn't a drug per se. It helps with nothing, not even with faster recovery or whatever.
    It helps to ... pee. She either was bloated and drank it, or probably wanted to loose like 100 grams, because every little bit helps to keep your weight.
    But it is deemed an illegal substance, since sometimes in athletics athletes try to "pee faster" and erase the traces of doping with it, hence it is forbidden and made equal to a doping.
    She's not a top notch athlete who was drinking steroids, she just was stupid enough not to consult with a doctor before taking any drug. Considering she's not a top athlete in the country, she probably had no access to a team doctor, so no one to advise her on those things.

    diuretics are banned because they erase other substances from the body quicker... there is a reason why it's considered a drug... on top of that, i don't think athletes should try to speed up their metabolism every competition.. in a sport like figure skating where there is already a culture of eating disorder etc, it's certainly not a good idea... taking pills to keep your weight down... not good. Also, top notch athlete or not, the rules are the same for everyone.

    Yup, not trying to excuse her from being punished. Just saying, it appears to me more like she's just a stupid young girl, rather than a someone, who was purposefully doping.
