Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Russian gymnast handed one-year ban for ‘Z’ symbol display”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Russian gymnast Ivan Kuliak has been hit with a one-year ban for appearing on the podium with a ‘Z’ symbol attached to his leotard at an event in Qatar earlier this year.

Announcing the decision, the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) said Kuliak would also be stripped of the bronze medal he won at the Apparatus World Cup event in Doha.

Kuliak will be fined 500 Swiss francs (around $500) and will have to pay 2,000 Swiss francs towards the costs of the proceedings in his case.

The ban means Kuliak, 20, will be barred from competing in any event sanctioned by the FIG or competitions organized by affiliated member federations.

Russian and Belarusian athletes are currently banned from all FIG events for an indefinite period due to the conflict in Ukraine.
