American weightlifter Sarah Robles has been suspended for two years by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for testing positive for a banned substance.

The USADA announced Tuesday she tested positive for the presence of an anabolic steroid and/or its metabolites.

Robles finished seventh in the super heavyweight division at the London Olympics. Her suspension will be lifted in August 2015, about a year before the 2016 Rio Games.

The 25-year-old lifter's suspension began last August when the International Wrestling Federation imposed a provisional suspension. Any results by Robles subsequent to May 31 — when the USADA says her first positive sample was collected — also have been wiped out.
