Norway's world bronze medalist Peter Ribe has been banned from the Games after failing a drug test, team officials said.

Ribe tested positive for the stimulant ephedrine at a competition in Germany in June and faces a three-month ban from the sport.

The suspension covers the period of the Games and Ribe has been taken off the team, officials said.

Ribe, 29, won a bronze medal at the 1993 world championships in the doubles kayak (K-2) event.
