Brazilian cyclist Da Silva Ramos fails doping test
The International Cycling Union says a Brazilian rider has failed a doping test.
The UCI says Kleber da Silva Ramos tested positive for a banned substance during a preOlympic test on July 31. He has been suspended until a ruling is made on his case.
Da Silva Ramos competed in the men's Olympic road race on Aug. 6 but failed to finish. He is not due to compete in any other events.
On Friday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said three athletes had failed doping tests — a Chinese swimmer, a Polish weightlifter and a Bulgarian runner. None of them won medals in Rio de Janeiro.
