Kyrgyzstan's Bazarguruev and Japan's Kenichi Yumoto are now bronze and silver medalists in new medal standings for each weight category affected by the anti-doping tests.

Bazarguruev was born January 9, 1985, he is a wrestler of Buryat descent from Kyrgyzstan. He participated in Men's freestyle 60 kg at 2008 Summer Olympics and was ranked on 4-5 place. He lost the bronze medal fight with Kenichi Yumoto from Japan.

Soslan Tigiev, who also has a violation in 2012, is banned for life. Baroev and T.
