Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - An Irish Olympic boxer has been provisionally suspended for a positive doping test on the eve of the Rio Games, which open Friday.

"The Irish Athletic Boxing Association (IABA) has been notified by Sport Ireland today of an alleged violation of the Irish anti-doping rules committed by one of the boxers in our high performance unit," IABA said in a statement issued on Thursday.

"The athlete in question has been informed and is provisionally suspended," it added. "The boxer can request to have a ‘B‘ sample tested, but cannot participate in any competition or activity prior to the completion of an investigation."

IABA did not name the boxer, but the Irish Examiner newspaper reported it was 23-year-old Michael O‘Reilly, who was due to fight in the middleweight category in Rio on Friday.

The Examiner said the positive sample was from a test done domestically before he travelled to Brazil. It is not known if O‘Reilly, who now faces missing out on his first Games, will contest the violation.
