Weightlifter tests positive
Nan Aye Khine
Khine is the second athlete to test positive in Athens
Myanmar weightlifter Nan Aye Khine has been thrown out of the Games after failing a drugs test.

The 27-year-old finished fourth in the women's 48kg catergory on Saturday.

But the International Olympic Committee announced Khine had tested positive for an anabolic steroid and ordered her to leave the Olympic Village immediately.

Khine claimed she has been taking a herbal remedy on a regular basis but the team doctor had not fully examined its contents.
