Nigerian gold medallist Chika Amalaha has been provisionally suspended from the Commonwealth Games for failing a drugs test.

The 16-year-old won weightlifting gold with a combined total of 196kg in the women's 53kg category.

Her "A" sample was found to contain amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide, which are both prohibited as diuretics and masking agents. Amalaha will have a "B" sample tested today.

The teenager won gold last Friday.
