Reported: Friday, February 21, 2014 2:37 PM EST
The head of Germany's Olympic body says one of the country's top biathletes is on her way home after testing positive for a banned stimulant.
Vesper told reporters the news rocked the German Olympic team.
"Of course we were shocked by the news and the mood in our Olympic team was clearly very bad. We are absolutely in favor of team sport and against any kind of manipulation," he said. "This is why — before the games and during the games — we took action. We also acted quickly and decisively now in accordance with the athletes' agreement, an agreement that we have concluded with Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle."
