Latvian ice hockey player Ralfs Freibergs failed a drugs test at the Sochi Olympic Games and has been thrown out of the Games retrospectively, the International Olympic Committee announced Friday.

Freibergs, 23, was found to have taken a testosterone-based anabolic steroid after Latvia's quarter-final defeat to Canada.

Freibergs had been given the all-clear by the Latvian Olympic Committee, along with the 32 other members of their Sotchi squad, following drug tests before the Games.
