Ieva Adomaviciute of Lithuania has been suspended for anti-doping violations. She will miss the Tokyo Olympics.

 

She won gold in the women's double sculls at the 2018 World Championships.

 

I guess Lithuania keeps their quota place?

Just caught up. Two great races, not the processions we sometimes get. Incidentally, all that land there is polder - the  town of Ely was an island & all the rest was dangerous malarial swamp until the mid 19th century.

Donata Karaliūnaitė, the athlete that won the Olympic medal together with Milda Valčiukaitė has come back from retirement.

 

Valčiukaitė was recently injured, but recovering well and it was said that Karaliūnaitė is starting to look even better than before, so safe to say that Lithuania is still going to be a threat in the women's double sculls.

If Ieva didn't get suspended, would Donata have competed in the single sculls instead?

I think her comeback might've been inspired by the fact that the federation knew that Ieva wouldn't be let off the hook, even if the prohibited substance was consumed accidentally, so they organised a plan B since there was already an Olympic quota. 

 

But that's just my take
