Kenyan boxer David Munyasia has become the first Olympic competitor to fail a drugs test in Athens. The International Olympic Committee has firmly said that with an increase in dope-testing at this year's games, no cheats will slip through their fingers. The athlete has been now excluded from the games, his Olympic identity and accreditation card have also been withdrawn. The IOC has also contacted the International Boxing Association to consider any additional measures against Munyasia.
