Italian cyclist Claudio Salvi tested positive for the banned steroid nandrolone, the anti-doping panel of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) announced Thursday. The presence of the substance norandrosterone was detected at a level of two nanograms per milliliter — a result confirmed by an analysis on the second sample.
Salvi gave the sample in a random test on July 24 at Salice Terme a training camp for the Italian national under-23 cycling team.
