North Korea's Soccer Team hit by lightening... now doping test

In case you didn't know, Women's World Cup games are going on right now. And this made me crack up a little, then sad.

On June 29th, North Korea had a soccer game with the USA in Germany and lost by 2-0. After the game, the coach said during the interview that 5 of the players were hit by a lightening and got hospitalized. This made the front page titles then... and now...

FIFA announced this yesterday :
Defenders Song Jong Sun and Jong Pok Sim tested positive after North Korea's first two group games and were suspended for Wednesday's match against Colombia that ended in a 0-0 draw. Both teams were eliminated.
According to FIFA's doping test rules, the rest of the team will be tested as well. It'll be interesting to see how this will turn out.
