EbeneInfo – AU – Australian Olympic swimmers could have medals stripped after positive drug test


Six Australian Olympic swimmers risk forfeiture of their medals after positive drug test – eight years later

A sample provided by Brenton Rickard, who was part of the men’s 4×100-meter medley team that won bronze at the London Olympics in 2012, was ironed, revealing traces of furosemide, reported the Sydney Morning Herald

Furosemide is a masking agent and has been found in « extremely low concentration », according to lawyers for Rickard

The two-time Olympian emailed his teammates on Friday to confirm that the International Olympic Committee were seeking to disqualify his results, and therefore the team’s results, from the London Games

James Magnussen, Christian Sprenger, Hayden Stoeckel, Matt Targett, Tommaso D’Orsogna and Rickard all risk losing their medals

Rickard called the potential result « grossly unfair and disproportionate » given that he did not swim in the final

He maintains his innocence and told his teammates that the low concentration could be explained by several over-the-counter medications he took the week before the test

He will fight the sanction during a hearing of the Court of Arbitration for Sport from Monday, November 9 in Switzerland
