Women's 100m gold medallist Osayomi Oludamolo of Nigeria was provisionally suspended on Monday after she tested positive for a banned stimulant. The athlete tested positive for methylhexaneamine, a stimulant under category S6 of the World Anti Doping Agency list of prohibited substances and methods.

"The provisional hearing ruled that the provisional suspension of the athlete will continue until the result of the B sample is received," said the CGF statement.http://www.hindustantimes.com/images/HTeditimages/images/cwg.nigerian.jpg

"The Federation Court will give its final deliberation on the matter of Ms Oludamola (Osayomi) upon receipt of the B sample test result," it added.

The results from the athlete's B sample would be known only on Wednesday.

The Nigerian got gold in Thursday’s sprint after Australia's Sally Pearson, the first runner to cross the finish line, was disqualified following a false start. If Osayomi is disqualified Natasha Mayers (St. Vincent and the Granedines), who finished second, would be awarded the gold.
