Disgraced athlete Schwazer used Google maps to find EPO


(ANSA) - Bolzano, August 20 - Disgraced athlete Alex
Schwazer says he used Google maps to find pharmacies in Turkey
where he would be likely to find the performance-enhancing
substance EPO.
Schwazer told magistrates in Bolzano on Monday that he
travelled to Antalya in Turkey last September for a few days to
find the substance.
He then returned to Italy.
Schwazer was charged with doping ahead of the 50km walk
event at the recent London Summer Olympic games.
Drug tests a few days before the event showed traces of the
blood-boosting hormone EPO in his urine, excluding him from the
50km walk.
Schwazer won gold in the event at the 2008 Games in
Beijing, something he says he achieved without
performance-enhancing drugs.
Some have speculated that the anxiety to match that
performance drove Schwazer to turn to drugs.
