 LONDON (AP) — Two Ukrainian super heavyweights have joined the swelling ranks of weightlifters dropping out at the London Olympics.

Ukraine`s Olympic Committee says Svetlana Cherniavska has not recovered from an injury she received a month ago and cannot compete in the women's plus-75 kilogram competition Sunday.

It also says men's super heavyweight Artem Udachyn was injured in training and won't take part in the plus-105 kilogram competition on Tuesday.
