List of stripped Olympic medals
| List of stripped Olympic medals ： ウィキペディア英語版|
Following is a list of stripped Olympic medals. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is the governing body that can rule when athletes are in violation of rules in the Olympic Games. The IOC can strip athletes' Olympic honors and request the return of medals. In the case of team events, the IOC can strip medals from a team based on infractions by a single team member. In the table below, for stripped team medals, the athlete in violation is shown in parentheses.
The international governing body of each Olympic sport can also strip athletes of medals for infractions of the rules of the sport.
Nearly all of the stripped medals involve infractions stemming from doping and drug testing. There are notable exceptions, however. Jim Thorpe was stripped of his two 1912 gold medals based on evidence he had participated in professional sports. Thorpe's honors were restored in 1982, thirty years after his death. Ibragim Samadov of the 1992 Unified Team was stripped of his bronze medal after he "hurled his bronze medal to the floor" and "stormed off the stage during the awards ceremony." Ara Abrahamian was stripped of his bronze medal in 2008 for similar reasons.
In very few cases the IOC has reversed earlier rulings that stripped athletes of medals. In the case of Rick DeMont, in 2001 the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) recognized his gold medal performance in the 1972 Summer Olympics,〔 but only the IOC has the power to restore his medal and it has refused to do so.
