Lifter Ransilu tested positive for drugs
Weight lifter Ransilu Jayatilleke of Sri Lanka Air Force has been
tested positive for banned substances during the national weight lifting
championships conducted by the Sri Lanka Weightlifting Federation and
worked off in Colombo recently.
Jayatilleke became the second weight lifter to be tested positive
this year after Chinthana Vidanage who faced a similar ignominy where he
was banned by the International Weight Lifting Federation after
competing in the Asian Weight Lifting Championships in China.
Earlier bantam weight boxer Manjula Wanniarachchi and three
ruggerites who represented Sri Lanka at the recent Asian Five Nations
rugby tournament were also tested positive for the same substance.
