Russian swimmer Natalia Lovtsova has been banned for two and a half years for doping, Russia’s anti-doping agency RUSADA announced on Saturday.

“The Russian Swimming Federation has banned Lovtsova for a violation of the anti-doping code for two and a half years from November 30, 2012,” the agency stated on its website.

Lovtsova was a member of Russia’s freestyle relay squad at last year’s London Olympics.

It was a second doping ban in the space of just two days for Russian swimmers.
