Dunn, who finished fourth in the 400 meters at Olympic trials,
was selected for the American relay pool. She is the 2010 world
indoor champion at 400 meters.
In a statement Friday, she acknowledged a positive doping test
and said she was withdrawing from the Olympics while the U.S.
Anti-Doping Agency resolves the case.

sample, and that "USADA appreciates Ms. Dunn voluntarily removing
herself" from the team while the case is pending.
No replacement was immediately named. USA Track and Field CEO
Max Siegel said Dunn did the appropriate thing by withdrawing.
