New York – It is reported that Australian swimmer Shane Jack has been notified that she is facing a four-year ban by ASADA, the Australian Anti-Doping Authority.
Jack was sent home before the last World Cups after failing a drug test,
Jack protests his innocence and there are indications that he will contest any suspension. In the meantime, swimming in Australia has been heavily criticized for dealing with the case of Jack, a national body accused of cover-up.
The 20-year-old Australian was previously suspended by the new International Swimming League
Jack was selected last month to compete for the Cali Condors team during the ISL season, which begins in October.
The ISL said on Monday that Jack's suspension was in effect while the Australian Anti-Doping Agency was investigating.
Andrea di Nino, Managing Director of ISL, says that all athletes with doping control or ethical violations will be considered unacceptable without recourse.
The 20-year-old swimmer said she tested positive for Ligandrol, a substance she believes could be found in contaminated supplements. Jack hired a lawyer and said he would struggle to clear his name.
