Rome, December 20 - An Italian Olympic Committee
(CONI) prosecutor on Thursday asked for a four-year ban for
former Olympic walk champion Alex Schwazer who tested positive
for the illegal blood-booster EPO before the London Olympics.
Schwazer is also charged with possession of testosterone and
"other violations", the prosecutor said in requesting the
maximum ban.
In September Schwazer was placed under a criminal
investigation for the positive drugs test that led to him
missing this year's London Games.
Test results released days before he was due to defend the
50km walk title he won in Beijing in 2008 showed traces of EPO
in his urine.
Doping is a criminal offence in Italy.
