The International Olympic Committee says it'll decide by mid-October on the doping cases of two Belarus hammer throw Olympic medallists who tested positive during the Beijing Games.

The IOC also said a Polish athlete who was fourth in the men's kayak double 1000 metres event in Beijing was being investigated for possible anti-doping rule violations.

The IOC says it has decided to give the athletes from Belarus more time to present their case.

The Kayaker is Adam Seroczynski.
