LIMA (Reuters) - Puerto Rico was stripped of the Pan Am Games men’s doubles bowling gold medal after a failed drug test, the Pan American Games Association said on Sunday.

Jean Perez Faure tested positive for Chlorthalidone, a banned diuretics and masking agent.

As a result, United States has been elevated to gold.

Colombia moves up to silver while Mexico gets onto the podium with the bronze.
