Soslan Tigiev (born October 12, 1983 in Vladikavkaz) is a Russian and Uzbekistani wrestler of Ossetian descent who competed in the freestyle 74 kg category. He is the 2006 Asian Games bronze medalist. Tigiev was initially awarded a silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing and a bronze medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.[1] His 2012 Olympic medal was stripped on November 7, 2012 after he tested positive for the banned stimulant methylhexaneamine.[2] He was stripped of his 2008 Olympic medal in 2016 after dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (turinabol) was found during retesting of his samples from Beijing.[3]
