Wrestler Ali Bernard

Ali Bernard of New Ulm, Minn., was named to the U.S. Olympic wrestling team on Thursday after Stephany Lee, who defeated Bernard at the Olympic trials, was suspended because of a positive drug test.

Lee swept the championship series against Bernard in the 72-kilogram women's class at the trials last April in Iowa City. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced Thursday that Lee had tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol acid, a marijuana metabolite, in a sample collected at the trials. Lee, 27, also tested positive for the same substance in 2009.

Bernard, 26, competed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and finished fifth. She was the bronze medalist at the 2011 world championships in Turkey, a performance that qualified the United States to compete at 72kg in London.
