LAUSANNE, Switzerland Norwegian rider Tony Andre Hansen was stripped of his Olympic bronze medal in team jumping Monday after his horse tested positive for a banned drug at the Beijing Games.

Hansen was disqualified by the International Equestrian Federation and banned from the sport for 4 1/2 months. Hansen, 29, was the best performer in a four-rider Norway team which won bronze under a scoring system where the top three count.
