GEORGE TOWN: The two national elite weightlifters have tested positive for banned substances and will be recalled immediately from their centralised training camp in China.

The Malaysian Weightlifting Federation (MWF) held a press conference here on Friday to confirm that the two lifters had tested positive for anabolic steroids during an out-of-competition testing done by the Anti-Doping Agency of Malaysia (Adamas) in Bukit Jalil last month.
