Bulgarian 3000m steeplechaser Silvia Danekova has failed a drugs test ahead of her start at Rio Olympics.

She arrived in Rio on July 26 and her doping samples were collected a few days later. 

"Unfortunately, we have a positive test," confirmed Bulgarian Olympic committee.

Danekova will now have to wait for the B sample results, but until then she will  be provisionally suspended.

Last year Danekova made the final at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing.
