LONDON (AP) - Two Ukrainian super heavyweights have joined the swelling ranks of weightlifters dropping out of 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 during training and won't take part in the plus-105 kilogram competition on Tuesday.

Other weightlifting dropouts include Ukrainian Artem Ivanov and Russians Dmitry Klokov, Khadzhimurat Akkaev and Oxana Slivenko.
