Russia’s Supreme Court has released four convicted steroid smugglers ( bodybuilder Dmitry Koshuba ( RET ), Vladimir Matyuk, Sergei Degtaryov and Yelena Tsymbal ) after overturning the most severe charges against them.

During their original trial the jury acquitted them of 58 of 60 charges they faced but the group were still sentenced to jail time ranging from four and a half to six and a half years for attempted smuggling and illegal distribution of controlled substances.
