LONDON (Reuters) - Russian track rider Victoria Baranova failed a pre-Olympics dope test and was sent home by her national federation, the International Cycling Union (UCI) said on Friday.
"It is the result of a test carried out by the IOC before the Games. She has admitted to taking a banned substance and was sent home two or three days ago," UCI spokesman Enrico Carpani told Reuters.
Baranova was due to take part in the keirin at the Olympics.
