GUANGZHOU, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Uzbekistan's women's chess team refused to take part in the seventh round team competition on Wednesday, arguing their fixture was "wrong".

The Uzbek team, who received the fixture Tuesday night which pitted them against Bangladesh in Wednesday game, found out their seventh round rivals were Vietnam.

When contacted by Xinhua, an OCA official refused to comment on the change of the fixture.

The seventh round has been suspended.

In a separate incident, Uzbek Greco-Roman wrestler Jakhongir Muminov was disqualified on Wednesday after testing positive for the banned stimulant Methylhexaneamine.

In the Games' first doping case, Uzbekistan's judoka Shokir Muminov was stripped of his silver medal last Friday after testing positive for Methylhexaneamine.
