Gymnast thrown out

12:31 pm on 2 August 2012

Uzbek gymnast Luiza Galiulina has been expelled from the London 2012 Olympics after her B sample tested positive for furosemide, a banned substance.

Galiulina was provisionally banned earlier this week after her urine sample showed traces of the diuretic, which can be used as a masking agent for other performance-enhancing drugs.
