Larissa Lazutina
Larissa Lazutina, right, was tossed out of the Olympics after her positive test.
Drug Busts
Russia's Larissa Lazutina and Spain's Johann Muehlegg were stripped of their most recent gold medals after testing positive for an EPO-like drug that's not yet on the banned list yet. Lazutina -- who was DQ'd from a relay as well -- will lost her gold from the 30K classic (it would have been her record-tying 10th medal overall). Muehlegg was ordered to return his gold in the 50K.
