CWG Commonwealth Games 2010, Delhi, India: 100m sprinter Osayomi, Okon stripped off Gold for failing doping tests:

CWG Commonwealth Games 2010, Delhi, India: 

As announced by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) Nigerian sprinter Oludamola Osayomi has been stripped off her Gold medal in the Women's 100m for failing drugs test.

Osayomi had tested positive for Methylexaneamine, a drug that is categorised as a banned stimulant under category S6 under the World Anti-Doping Agency's list of prohibited substances and methods. 

The Commonwealth Federation Court determined that Osayomi had violated anti-doping rules and would be disqualified for the Games; eventually all her competition results will be treated as nullified.

The Gold medal won by her for the Women's 100m will now be awarded to the next fastest sprinter Natasha Mayers (SVG), the Silver to Katherine Endacott(ENG), and the Bronze to Bertille Delphine Atangana (CMR).
