LAUSANNE, Switzerland: The International Gymnastics Federation has banned a gymnast from Uzbekistan for six months for doping at the London Olympics.
The FIG says 20-year-old Luiza Galiulina is suspended through Jan. 30.
Galiulina tested positive in London for furosemide, a banned diuretic, in a urine sample taken two days before the Summer Games opened. She was not expected to contend for a medal.
The governing body says it ordered the Uzbekistan Gymnastics Federation to pay 2,000 Swiss francs ($2,100) toward the disciplinary hearing costs.
Galiulina and Uzbek officials can appeal within 21 days.
