Nigerian weightlifting winner fails doping test

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - The Commonwealth Games Federation says Nigerian female weightlifting gold medalist Chika Amalaha has failed a doping test.

CGF chief executive Mike Hooper says Tuesday that Amalaha tested positive for diuretics and masking agents after winning gold in the 53-kilogram (117-pound) division last Friday.

The backup "B'' sample will be tested on Wednesday.

Too bad they never tested the Williams sisters when they were winning. Look at the photos, they were obviously sterioid users. Skinny arms and losing now.

Another African cheater. All the Kenyan long distance runners have been cheating for years as has the Jamaican runners. They have ways of masking the drug use that either the IOC can not deiscover OR does
not want to discover.
