Swimmer Napoleon to get doping ban verdict Monday

Swimmer Napoleon to get doping ban verdict Monday

Australian swimmer Ryan Napoleon will find out on Monday if his doping ban for using a wrongly labeled asthma inhaler has been set aside, allowing him to swim at the Commonwealth Games.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport heard Napoleon's appeal Friday and scheduled its ruling next week.
FINA suspended Napoleon for three months in August despite acknowledging that a pharmacist's mistake led to his positive test for the banned drug formoterol. FINA said its doping panel imposed the ban to "underline the responsibility of the athlete to check his medicine."
Australia selected Napoleon to swim the 400- and 1,500-meter freestyle races at the Oct. 3-14 games in New Delhi.
