Greece's world indoor high jump champion Dimitris Chondrokoukis withdrew
from the London Olympics on Thursday after testing positive for the
drug Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson used before the 1988 Seoul Games.
Johnson was sent home in disgrace after metabolites of the anabolic
steroid stanozolol were found in his urine sample following his victory
over Carl Lewis in the 100 metres final in world record time.
Chondrokoukis' father and coach Kyriakos said the athlete would seek a retest after a positive test for stanozolol.
