Delpopolo expelled for positive test

American judo fighter Nick Delpopolo was expelled from the Olympics for doping Monday, saying he unintentionally ate something before the games that had been baked with marijuana. The IOC added that he tested positive for metabolites of cannabis after competing on July 30, the day of his event. He is to be stripped of his accreditation immediately, and the IOC will ask the International Judo Federation to change the standings in Delpopolo's event.

''I apologize to U.S. Olympic Committee, to my teammates, and to my fans, and I am embarrassed by this mistake,'' he said in a statement released by the USOC. ''I look forward to representing my country in the future, and will rededicate myself to being the best judo athlete that I can be.''
