Aug. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Olympic officials stripped cyclist Tyler Hamilton of his gold medal from the 2004 Athens games after the American admitted doping before the event.

The 41-year-old won the men’s individual time trial and was 18th in the men’s road race in Greece, and in a June 28 letter to the International Olympic Committee “admitted having used performance enhancing drugs in advance of the Athens Olympic Games,” the IOC said today in an e-mailed statement. The IOC disqualified the cyclist.

Russian silver medalist Viatcheslav Ekimov will be named the champion, with American Bobby Julich getting the silver and Australia’s Michael Rogers promoted to bronze.
