Wow. If you can’t trust your coach….
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Swimming’s governing body says an Estonian coach has been banned for life after spiking his athlete’s drink with anabolic steroids.
FINA says an Estonian anti-doping panel found that Nikolai Borzov gave Anita Stepanenko a drink containing stanozolol “without notifying the swimmer.”
Stepanenko received a one-year ban which expires on July 22, 2014. She tested positive at an Estonia vs. Finland meet in Tallinn in May.
