Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Chinese swimmer Chen Xinyi and Bulgarian steeplechaser Silvia Danekova have tested positive for banned substances in the first failed doping tests at the Rio Olympics.

The 18-year-old female swimmer failed a doping test in Rio de Janeiro on August 7, the Chinese news agency Xinhua reported, citing the Chinese Swimming Association.

The swimmer has asked for an examination of the B sample.

Further details about the doping investigation were not immediately known.

Chen Xinyi finished fourth in the 100-metre butterfly on Sunday and was scheduled to compete in the 50-metre freestyle on Saturday.

The Bulgarian Olympic Committee confirmed Friday that both the A and B samples of a doping probe on Danekova were positive.

Danekova, 33, was tested on July 30 immediately upon her arrival in the Olympic Village and was found positive for the performance boosting eryrhropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA), which stimulates red blood cell production.

Danekova, who was due to compete in Saturday‘s 3,000m steeplechase heats, has been suspended.

She told Bulgarian broadcaster bTV she would now end her athletic career.

Bulgaria‘s sports ministry condemned Danekova, saying in a statement: "It is inadmissible that the image of Bulgaria is destroyed in this way and a stain placed on the entire Bulgarian sport."

On Thursday, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had said that more than 2,000 doping tests had been carried during the Rio Olympics with no positive cases at that time.
