Nigerian teenage weightlifter Chika Amalaha faces a hearing before the Commonwealth Games Federation on Friday over her failed drugs test.
Amalaha, whose A sample failed a control after claiming gold in the women’s 53kg category on July 25, also produced a positive B sample. The tests revealed traces of diuretics and masking agents.
CGF chief executive Mike Hooper said the follow-up examination backed up the initial finding of the doping control that Amalaha went through after her victory in the 52kg class at the Clyde Auditorium seven days ago. Amalaha snatched a best of 85kg to become the youngest weightlifter gold medallist.
