Zinaida Vladimirovna Stahurskaya (original name: Зинаида Владимировна Стагурская; also written as Zinaida Stagurskaya, Zinaida Stahurskaia or Zinaida Stagourskaya; 9 February 1971 – 25 June 2009) was a Belarusian racing cyclist who was the world champion in 2000. Stahurskaya was born in Vitebsk. She rode at the 1992 Summer Olympics for the Unified Team and at the 1996 Summer Olympics and the 2004 Summer Olympics for Belarus.[1]


In 2006 Stahurskaya was banned for two years for a drugs test that she failed in 2005 at a number of European races. One positive test for the anabolic steroid stanozolol at the GP Carnevale Europa and twice for the hormone testosterone at the Giro di San Marino and Sparkassen Giro Bochum.[2]

Stahurskaya had earlier been suspended for a positive test for a banned diuretic at the 2001 Giro d'Italia Femminile and a positive test for ephedrine at the 2003 Circuito di Massarosa. She was subsequently banned for four months and for two months respectively.[3]


Stahurskaya died in 2009 after being struck by a car while training.[4]
