Nick Delpopolo http://wamc.org en Vox Pop : Sport and Illegal Substances : 8/7/12 http://wamc.org/post/vox-pop-sport-and-illegal-substances-8712 <p>This week local judo fighter Nick Delpopolo became the first Olympic athlete to be disqualified from competing after an in-competition drug test. It wasn&rsquo;t steroids or human growth hormone that got him kicked off the American squad, it was a positive test for marijuana, which was added to the International Olympic Committee&rsquo;s banned substances list following a positive test in 1998.</p> Tue, 07 Aug 2012 19:00:00 +0000 44951 at http://wamc.org
