Albanian Weightlifter Is Banned for Doping

Albanian weightlifter Hysen Pulaku was banned from the Olympics on Saturday for failing a drug test, the first athlete to be sanctioned for doping during the London Games, according to the International Olympic Committee.

In this case, I think that the athlete should not be banned because he was not aware that the supplements he was consuming were considered as doping supplements and therefore his intention was not to use illegal supplements to win. It is still partially his fault though because he should know what he is consuming.
