Top U.S. skeleton slider warned by doping officials

American skeleton slider Zach Lund apparently will compete in next month's Turin Olympics after the U.S. &to=' target=_blank>Anti-Doping Agency on Monday issued him only a public warning following a failed drug test.

Because he wasn't suspended, the U.S. Olympic Committee, which approves the delegation for Turin, was expected to credential Lund for the games.

Lund tested positive for Finasteride, a banned substance often used as a steroid-masking agent, at a competition in November and was barred from the past two World Cup races. Lund said the positive result stemmed from his use of a hair-restoration product.

The USADA ordered that Lund forfeit his second-place finish from the season's opening World Cup race in Calgary, Alberta in November. That was the competition where Lund had the positive test.
