SOFIA, Bulgaria -- Bulgarian 800-meter runner Teodora Kolarova tested positive for testosterone and her federation will decide whether to suspend her.

Kolarova's "A" and "B" samples were positive from an out-of-competition test in Sofia in June, the Bulgarian track and field federation said Friday.

Federation chairman Dobri Karamarinov said Kolarova will be summoned for questioning Oct. 25 before the group decides if a suspension is warranted.

Earlier this year, international track and field's ruling body suspended Bulgarian 400-meter runner Vanya Stambolova and high jumper Venelina Veneva for doping.
