A female gymnast from Uzbekistan has been provisionally suspended from the London Olympics after failing a drug test. It’s the second doping case of the games.

The International Olympic Committee said Luiza Galiulina, a lesser-known name with no medal hopes tested positive for a banned diuretic in a pre-games urine control in London on Thursday. After attending a hearing on Sunday night, the 20-year-old athlete was suspended pending the testing of her backup "B sample" Monday morning.

The IOC says Galiulina contends she did not take the substance and did not know how it entered her system. On Sunday, the IOC expelled Albanian weightlifter Hysen Pulaku from the games after he tested positive for the banned steroid stanozolol.
