Nancy Reagan bummed that Russian nordic skier Anton Kamenev fails drug test

Another doping allegation has hit the Russian ski team.  Anton Kamenev failed a drug test at the recent nordic combined championships in Moscow.  Amphetamine was the identified drug in Kamenev’s system.  

Bad news for the Russians as this comes on the heels of Julia Chepalova and Nina Rysina failing tests after the blood-doping drug EPO was found in their system.

Kamenev, 23, competed in the Winter Olympics for the Russian team in the nordic combined.  He now faces a two-year ban that would rule him out of the Vancouver Olympics.
