COLORADO SPRINGS -- Hammer and weight thrower Thomas Jacob Freeman has been suspended for a year by USA Track and Field for testing positive for a prohibited substance.

USATF announced on Wednesday that the 31-year-old Freeman, from Westbury, N.Y., tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol acid, a marijuana metabolite in the class of Cannabinoids, in a sample collected at the USA Indoor Track & Field Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. in February.

According to USATF, this is Freeman's second doping violation, having previously tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol acid in 2009.

All Freeman's results, starting from February 26, have been disqualified.
