Nadezhda Alexandrovna Evstyukhina (Russian: Надежда Александровна Евстюхина; born 27 May 1988) is a Russian weightlifter.

Career[edit]

In the 69 kg category, Evstyukhina won the silver medal at the 2005 Junior World Championships,[1] and the gold medal at the 2006 Junior World Championships.[2]

Evstyukhina participated in the women's -75 kg class at the 2006 World Weightlifting Championships and won the silver medal,[3] finishing behind Cao Lei. She snatched 122 kg and clean and jerked an additional 145 kg for a total of 267 kg, 1 kg behind winner Cao.[4]

At the 2007 World Weightlifting Championships she won the bronze medal in the 75 kg category, with a total of 278 kg.[5]

She also initially was awarded the bronze medal in the 75 kg category at the 2008 Summer Olympics, with a total of 264 kg.[1][6] She competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics, but failed to snatch the initial weight.[7]

On 31 August 2016, the International Olympic Committee confirmed that Evstyukhina had been disqualified from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Reanalysis of Evstyukhina's samples from Beijing 2008 resulted in a positive test for the prohibited substances dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (turinabol) and EPO. As a result, her results were expunged, the athlete was disqualified and her bronze medal removed.[8] The fate of her other medals following the 2008 positive sample is to be decided by the IWF.
