SOCHI, Russia >> German Olympic officials say biathlete Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle has been kicked out of the Sochi Games after a positive doping test.

The German Olympic Committee says she tested positive on Monday for the stimulant methylhexanamine. Both the "A'' sample and backup "B'' sample were positive.

The committee says the athlete has been removed from the team and is being sent home.

Sachenbacher-Stehle competed in five events in Sochi but did not win any medals. Her best results were two fourth-place finishes, in the 12.5K mass start and the mixed relay. She also finished 11th in the 7.5k sprint, 27th in the 10K and 20th in the 15K.

Also Friday, the Italian Olympic Committee announced that bobsledder William Frullani was expelled from the games after a positive test for a stimulant.
