Ukrainian weightlifter expelled for doping

Ukrainian weightlifter Igor Razoronov has become the sixth athlete kicked out of the Beijing Olympics for doping.
The International Olympic Committee says Razoronov tested positive for the steroid nandrolone after finishing sixth in the 105-kilogram division.
The IOC ruled Saturday that the 38-year-old Razoronov was disqualified and excluded from the games.
Five other athletes had been previously caught for doping.
Lyudmila Blonska of Ukraine was stripped of her heptathlon silver medal Friday. Also disqualified were Greek hurdler Fani Halkia, North Korean shooter Kim Jong Su, Spanish cyclist Isabel Moreno and Vietnamese gymnast Thi Ngan Thuong Do. Kim was stripped of silver and bronze medals.
