Drugs scandal leaves Canada with a man less
No cheating. No drugs. Zero tolerance is the IPC drug policy and that means Canadian Earle Conner is on a flight home.
Earle Connor from Canada, one of the world’s top Paralympic athletes, won’t be competing at the Games in Athens after he tested positive for trace amounts of testosterone and nandrolone in an out-of-competition test on August 23.
The 28-year-old Connor, who won a 200m silver medal in 2000, was one of Canada’s top medal hopes in Athens and was to be one of three athletes to carry the Canadian flag in Friday’s opening ceremony.
