RIO DE JANEIRO -- Russia was stripped of a relay gold medal from the 2008 Beijing Olympics on Tuesday after one of its female runners tested positive for steroids in a reanalysis of her doping samples.Sprinter Yulia Chermoshanskaya tested positive for two drugs -- stanozolol and turinabol -- and has been retroactively disqualified and stripped of the gold in the womens 4x100-meter relay, along with her teammates, the International Olympic Committee said.Chermoshanskaya was also disqualified from the 200 meters, in which she finished eighth.Belgium stands to be upgraded to the relay gold, with Nigeria moving up to silver and Brazil to bronze.The IOC asked the IAAF to modify the results and consider any further sanctions against Chermoshanskaya, who is no longer competing.The three other Russians runners in the relay final were Yulia Gushchina, Alexandra Fedoriva and Evgeniya Polyakova. Under IAAF rules, an entire relay team loses its medals if one of the runners tests positive.The Belgian runners in line to get the gold are Olivia Borlee, Hanna Marien, Elodie Ouedraogo and Kim Gevaert.The United States did not make the relay final after dropping the baton in the heats. The Jamaican and British teams dropped the baton in the final.The IOC said Chermoshanskaya claimed in a written statement she had been injured ahead of the Beijing Games and had been receiving injections on medical advice. The IOC said she should have declared those medications at the time.Turinabol and stanozolol are both traditional steroids that go back decades. Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson tested positive for stanozolol at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, where he was stripped of the gold medal in the 100 meters.Tuesdays decision was another black eye for Russia, whose track and field team was banned from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics over allegations of state-sponsored doping. Investigations are continuing into wider systematic doping in Russia involving dozens of other summer and winter Olympic sports.Using enhanced techniques, the IOC has retested more than 1,000 doping samples from the Beijing Games and 2012 London Olympics to catch cheats who evaded detection at the time. A total of 98 athletes were caught.The IOC stores doping samples for 10 years to allow them to be reanalyzed when improved tests become available, meaning cheats can be caught years later. For the Beijing and London retests, the IOC used a method that can detect use of steroids going back weeks and months, rather than days.Chermoshanskaya is the seventh athlete formally disqualified so far by the IOC as a result of the Beijing and London retesting program.

PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Kiko-Alonso-Jersey/ . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Jermon-Bushrod-Jersey/ . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Nat-Moore-Jersey/ .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Walt-Aikens-Jersey/ . But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. When the Dallas Cowboys began practice preparations Wednesday for their Week 5 home game against the Cincinnati Bengals, multiple offensive linemen and star wide receiver Dez Bryant were in the trainers room and safety Jeff Heath was handling the place-kicking chores.Still, the mood is upbeat in Dallas.Doing great, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said.As in recent years, injuries are hitting the Cowboys (3-1) at key positions early in the season. Already without quarterback Tony Romo (back) and left guard Lael Collins (toe), Dallas is confident left tackle Tyron Smith (back) and top reserve Chaz Green (foot) will be back but there was less certainty for Bryant (knee) and cornerback Orlando Scandrick (hamstrings) playing this week.Hes just a complete receiver, said Bengals cornerback Adam Jones of Bryant, his workout partner in New Orleans in the offseason. Hes physical, he can run, he goes up and gets the ball at the highest point. And he plays with big swag -- thats what makes him so good.Bryant missed Week 4 with a fracture below his right knee but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday not to rule him out this week.Sixth-round pick Anthony Brown has filled in for Scandrick, who missed last season with a knee injury.Scandrick could be invaluable against the Bengals and wide receiver A.J. Green, who has 32 receptions for 468 yards and two touchdowns in 2016. Green caught 10 of quarterback Andy Daltons 22 completions in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins, and had a 12-catch, 180-yard game in the season opener. Hes averaging 14.6 yards per reception.It might not be Green who most concerns Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, given the traditional gaping hole in his cover-2 defense, one proven repeatedly last season against the Cowboys, is down the seam.The Bengals were expecting Tyler Eifert to play for the first time this season on Sunday, but a tweaked back forced the club to rule out the Pro Bowl tight end. Eifert has been inactive for all four games to date recovering from offseason ankle surgery.The 26-year-old Eifert, the Bengals first-round pick in 2013 out of Notre Dame, caught 52 passes for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns last season, a franchise record for TDs by a tight end.Some guys can go through a bad run of luck, and I think Tyler has had a bad run of luck, coach Marvin Lewis told reporters Friday. Hes conscientious about his body, conscientious about being a pro, and you love that part about him. Thats what Coach (Brian) Kelly told me right away from Notre Dame.People questioned certain things about him coming out (for the NFL draft), and Brian assured me that those were kind of false accusations, or they just werent totally true, and said he would be everything we wanted, and hes been. I think unfortunately he has had some injuries that have kept him out of playing. But hell overcome them.The Bengals will again rely on second-year tight end C.J. Uzomah in Eiferts absence. Uzomah has 11 catches for 144 yards and no touchdowns in four games this season.Cincinnati has come up with only spare change on too many red-zone trips, where offenses make the big money.On 13 possessions inside the opponents 20-yard line, Cincinnatii has scored only four touchdowns with eight field goals.dddddddddddd The Bengals rank 28th in the league in rushing offense at barely 80 yards per game, leaving Dalton somewhat exposed. Dalton has been sacked 13 times, and has checked away from running plays often.Were going to do whatever it takes to win, Dalton said. Some of these weeks, weve been able to throw a lot. Whatevers the best way for us to score. If (passing yards) are up there, so be it. If its not, its not.For the Cowboys, kicker Dan Bailey (back) could be limited all week. Garrett will only make a move to a replacement if the ailment stretches into the weekend. Garrett will not use double emergency option Heath in a game unless circumstances force it.Longest Ive ever hit was 49 yards, that was in high school. Id be comfortable mid-40s probably, Heath said. Its just kicking.Rumblings of Romos return later this month are far enough in the distance that there should be no distraction for Dallas rookie backfield combination of quarterback Dak Prescott -- interception-free after 131 pass attempts and completing 67.9 percent of his passes -- and running back Ezekiel Elliott.The level-headed Prescott said only good fortune has helped him start the season without a pick.They have a great, great front seven, said Prescott, who led the Cowboys from behind to win at San Francisco last week. We know weve got a pretty good stretch coming up starting this Sunday with the Bengals. Were confident, our team, our offense, in the direction were headed.Elliott, the fourth overall pick in the draft, was targeted by Cowboys coaches over an impactful defensive player because, as Garrett put it, he can really help a defense.That philosophy, copied from a successful 2014 strategy employed with DeMarco Murray as the bell-cow back, is taking hold. Elliott leads the NFL in rushing attempts and rushing yards entering Week 5, and Lewis is taking notice.Hes everything we thought he would be, Lewis said. Fast, strong, great vision, great cutter, the ability to make people miss within the hole, speed to the perimeter, runs behind his pads.The Bengals are talented defensively, with defensive tackle Geno Atkins and left defensive end Carlos Dunlap in front a linebacker corps that once again includes tenacious inside linebacker Vontaze Burfict. Burfict returned to the lineup last week after a three-game suspension for player-safety rules violations.Not having Bryant at 100 percent could work in Cincinnatis favor because it frees Lewis to play all of his cards: mixing coverages, fronts and rotating personnel. The Bengals are active and mix blitzes from every direction, a challenge to a rookie quarterback even with Prescotts poise and calm.Winning the line of scrimmage is a challenge Lewis made to his team Wednesday, with the expectation that Dallas would use Elliott and backup running back Alfred Morris to pound the ball until Cincinnati shows it can stop the run.Both these runners run through a lot of contact, Lewis said. So we really have to have our big boy pads on and tackle.
