• Argentine judoka disqualified for doping


    RIO DE JANEIRO: Argentine Jorge Lencina has been disqualified by a doping violation from the men’s judo -90kg at the Rio Paralympic Games, the International Paralympic Committee announced Thursday. Results from a urine test taken by the 40-year-old judoka revealed the presence of clomiphene, a substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s prohibited list, according to a statement by the IPC. His Rio 2016 accreditation has been cancelled and he has departed the Paralympic Village, it added. It is the second case of doping at the 2016 Paralympics after Saudi powerlifter Mashal Alkhazai was suspended for eight years Sunday for his second doping offence. He had not yet participated in his event.
