US competitor Nick Delpopolo was expelled from the London Olympic
Games on Monday after testing positive for marijuana and apologised to
organisers, fans and fellow athletes for unwittingly eating a brownie
that had been baked with the drug.
Delpopolo, 23, who finished seventh in the 73kg event, accepted his expulsion.
"My positive test was caused by my inadvertent consumption of food that I
did not realise had been baked with marijuana, before I left for the
Olympic Games," said Delpopolo, who trains in New York.
