TORONTO (AP) - Mauricio Fiol of Peru, the silver medalist in the 200-meter butterfly at the Pan American Games, has tested positive for the banned steroid stanozolol and been suspended from the team.

In a statement, the Peru team says, “We are profoundly sorry for the incident, which affects not only the athlete but all Peruvians.”

Fiol says, “I don’t understand how this could have happened. I’ve always promoted fair play.”

Fiol has the option of asking for the result of the B sample.
