Hungary's Zoltan Kovago banned 2 years, out of Olympics
BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Hungarian discus thrower Zoltan Kovago has been given a two-year doping ban and will miss the London Olympics.
The Hungarian Olympic Committee said in a statement Thursday that the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld an appeal filed by athletics governing body IAAF. The committee said Kovago, who was considered a medal contender for the London Games, refused to provide a sample to doping officials last year. Hungarian doping officials had initially cleared Kovago.
Kovago's ban comes shortly after another Hungarian discus thrower, Robert Fazekas, was removed from the Olympic team after testing positive for a banned substance.
