Jessica Hardy tests positive for banned substances

American swimmer Jessica Hardy has tested positive for a banned substance.

Hardy had qualified to swim in the 100m breaststroke, the 50m freestyle and the 4×100m freestyle relay in the Beijing Olympics.

A first time of fence usually carries a two year ban, but she can still make an appeal.

41-year-old Dara Torres will be the sole American in the 50 meters. Australian swimmers Libby Trickett and Cate Campbell are also medal hopefuls in the event.
