Horse Fails Drugs Test – Could Lose Medal

In a follow up to my much earlier post, it seems that horses are drug-tested at the olympics (even if it takes seven months to get the results)
and that this cost the sod on top his medal.

Irish show-jumper Cian O’Connor is moaning that it’s not fair to remove “his” medal just because his horse, Waterford Crystal, has taken a few anti-psychotics a few months before the games.

They are lucky the games has long since abandoned the Corinthian Spirit of strict amateurism and allows an obviously corporately sponsored competitor like Waterford Crystal to compete.
