7 more Russian weightlifters charged with doping offences
12 of nation's top competitors have been charged this week
Seven more top Russian weightlifters have been charged with doping offenses, taking the total charged this week to 12.
Two of them, Dmitry Lapikov and Nadezhda Evstyukina, were previously stripped of medals they won at the 2008 Olympics after samples they gave tested positive.
WADA has been analyzing a vast archive of data obtained in January from the anti-doping laboratory in Moscow, where cases were routinely covered up for years. WADA has started handing over its results to sports federations, causing a wave of new charges.
