Aloyan failed a test for tuaminoheptane, a stimulant, after undergoing an in-competition doping control on the day of the gold medal bout.

The appeal panel said the International Olympic Committee (IOC) anti-doping rules afforded no discretion and disqualification was a “necessary consequence” of the rule violation.
