The North Korean shooter has been stripped of his men's 50m air pistol silver and his 10m air pistol bronze medals after testing positive for a banned substance by the International Olympic Committee.

Jong-su tested positive for the beat blocker propranolol which was used to lower his heart rate and stop trembling.

A female vietnamese artistic gymnast, Thi Ngan Thuong Do, who finished last place in the floor exercise, was also disqualified, having also tested positive for a banned substance.

The North Korean would be wise to defect NOW..or his life is over.
