Kenyan boxer thrown out of Olympics


David Munyasia, the Kenyan bantamweight representative for the Greece Olympics which begin this weekend, was the first athlete to be sent home from the Games after testing positive for a banned substance.

He tested positive for the prohibited stimulant cathine, a psedoephedrine variant that is found in khat, the root chewed socially in Kenya and other parts of east Africa.

The International Olympic Committee began dope testing on July 30.
