A national champion hammer thrower, a gold-medal-winning sprinter and an outfielder in the Montreal Expos' farm system all face sanctions after positive drug tests announced Tuesday.
 

Terrmel Sledge, who is on the Expos' 40-man roster, has become the second player on a major league roster to test positive for steroids and has been banned from international competition for two years. The other is Derrick Turnbow, who also flunked a steroids test at the U.S. Olympic training camp.

The USADA also said it confirmed that sprinter Mickey Grimes tested positive for the stimulant ephedrine at last summer's Pan American Games.

Melissa Price, who won her first national title in June with a personal-best hammer throw of 230 feet, 9 inches, tested positive for the newly discovered steroid THG during those 2003 U.S. championships and in an out-of-competition test.

The big question is will the gold medal winner be stripped of his medal?
