St. Kitts Olympic committee vice president Dennis Knight tells the Associated Press that Williams had been using a substance which was "clearly outside the medical code."

Knight says Williams had not tested positive, but the team acted after consulting with the World Anti-Doping Agency.

He says Williams told team officials about using the substance in a pre-Olympics training camp. He did not disclose what the substance was.

The 22-year-old Williams had qualified for the 100 and 200 meters.

Williams marched at the Olympic opening ceremony on Friday.
