Chika Amalaha, who came up as a winner at the womens 53kg competition held Saturday, now might be stri*ped of her Commonwealth Games gold medal at the todays hearing, Sky Sports.

It would be recalled that the athlete was susoended Tuesday as she tested positive for diuretics and masking agents in Sample A, following which she immediately requested Sample B.
CGF chief executive Mike Hooper has today revealed that the second test also showed traces of the substances amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide (both banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency).
Nigerians were widely celebrating Chikas victory because she became the youngest ever female to win a weightlifting title at a Commonwealth Games.
Now if the hearing ends up negatively for the 16-year-old, her medal might be awarded to Dika Toua of Papua New Guinea.
