>Amalaha’s B Test Proves Positive

Nigerian teenage weightlifter, Chika Amalaha could be stripped of her Commonwealth Games gold medal when she faces a hearing after failing a drugs test in Glasgow.

The 16-year-old, who was initially suspended on Tuesday for testing positive, has now discovered her B sample also shows traces of the substances amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide both of which are banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Amalaha won the 53-kilogram division last week before testing positive for diuretics and masking agents.

Her victory was celebrated throughout Nigeria as she became the youngest ever female to win a weightlifting title at a Commonwealth Games.

But CGF chief executive Mike Hooper said that the B sample had also tested positive.

No ruling has yet been made on stripping her medal,which may eventually be awarded to Dika Toua of Papua New Guinea.
