As a follow-up to the Park Tae-hwan doping case that is continually unfolding, Yonhap News reports that FINA has scheduled the South Korean Olympic swimmer’s doping case hearing for February 27th.
The Korea Swimming Federation (KSF) indicates that FINA informed them it will hold the hearing at a to-be-named location in Lausanne, Switzerland. (Yonhap)
The hearing date being set is the latest among a series of updates this week stemming from Park’s failed doping test after receiving an injection at a chiropractic treatment. The substance within the injection has been identified as Nebido, a commercial brand of testosterone undecanoate.
Park’s camp maintains that the hospital who provided the injected confirmed it did not contain any prohibited substances and that civil and criminal charges may be launched against the facility.
