In 2016, she was stripped of the medal after reanalysis of her samples from the event resulted in a positive test for the prohibited substances turinabol and ipamorelin. Kolodko won silver medals at the 2013 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Gothenburg (disqualified in 2017) and at the 2014 European Athletics Championships in Zurich.
