IOC executive member Jacques Rogge said that women's 48kg gold medallist Izabela Dragneva and men's 62kg bronze medallist Sevdalin Minchev will both be disqualified.
Both lifters had trace of diurectics in their drug samples. Two days earlier, Bulgary's 56kg silver medallist Ivan Ivanov was stripped of his medal after testing positive for diurectics.
