Australia’s Jamie Kermond has been provisionally suspended from Tokyo 2020 after testing positive for cocaine.
The 36-year-old was scheduled to take part in equestrian competition but his place has been cast into doubt following the positive sample.
Sport Integrity Australia conducted the test on June 26, and Kermond has the option to demand analysis of his B sample.

"Kermond is prohibited from participating in any WADA compliant event, including the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, while the provisional suspension is in place," Equestrian Australia said in a statement.
"Equestrian Australia has spoken with Mr Kermond and support services will be offered to him."
The Australian Olympic Committee will discuss the situation on Wednesday. It is not immediately clear if they will be able to replace him in their three-person team.
