Colombian teenage runner fails drugs test
An 18-yr-old Colombian 400m runner, Diego Palomeque, was temporarily banned from the London 2012 Games after failing a drugs test.
According to a BBC report the teen did not participate in yesterday's 400m heats after a urine sample he provided on July 26 tested positive for high levels of testosterone.
The International Olympic Committee stated that they would delay taking further action, until the result of 'B' sample was revealed. The Colombian faces a two-year mandatory ban as a first time offender.
