The athlete was removed from the list of people awarded with Crosses of the Knight of the Order of the Lithuanian Grand Duke Gediminas.
Balčiūnaitė was decorated two years ago after becoming European women's marathon champion. Her coach Romas Sausaitis received a Medal of the Order for Merits to Lithuania. They both returned the state decorations in late September after the State Decorations Council ordered Chancellor Giedrius Krasauskas to ask the athlete to return the awards.
Balčiūnaitė's disqualification ended on 6 September.
Balčiūnaitė maintains she is innocent and has said that the positive drug test was a result of medication prescribed by her gynaecologist.
