(ANSA) - Rome, August 10 - The mother of Italy's disgraced
Olympic walk champion Alex Schwazer said Friday her son had been
in a suicidal "black hole" in the months prior to failing a drug
test and being excluded from the London Games.
"If my son was taking that stuff it's because he was in
despair. He had entered a black whole and didn't know how to get
out," Marie Louise Schwazer told Italian weekly Oggi.
When the news became public on Tuesday that her son had
taken the blood-boosting hormone EPO, she was rushed to the
emergency room for the tension.
"He had been suffering from an (emotional) crisis for
months. He was afraid he wasn't going to cut it (at the Games),"
she added.
"Two weeks ago he came to me crying and said, 'Mom, I have
a medal, but I don't have a life anymore. It's going to go bad.
I feel it. And if it goes wrong I'm going to jump, I'm going to
jump'".
