Aukhadov was the world junior champion in 2010 and won silver at the 2011 European Weightlifting Championships. He initially was awarded the silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the men's 85 kg category with a total of 385 kg. Aukhadov took gold at the 2013 World Weightlifting Championships with a combined total of 387 kg.
In June 2016, following the Russian doping scandal, it was announced by IWF that retests of the samples taken from the 2012 Olympics indicated that Aukhadov had tested positive for prohibited substances, namely Dehydrochloromethyltestosterone and Drostanolone. If confirmed, Aukhadov faced losing his Olympic medal and all results and medals earned from the date of the sample in 2012 to 2016. In October 2016, he was stripped of his Olympic medal.
