that guy is a weasel
also on the weasel....
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - American cyclist Tyler Hamilton
appealed his two-year doping suspension to the Court of Arbitration
for Sport.
The Olympic gold medalist asked CAS to overturn the April 18
decision by the independent American Arbitration Association to
suspend him for a blood doping violation.
Hamilton tested positive on Sept. 11 during the Spanish Vuelta,
a month after he won the time trial gold medal at the Athens
Olympics.
Hamilton's initial blood sample in Athens tested positive, but
that case was dropped because his backup specimen was mistakenly
frozen and couldn't be analyzed.
The Russian Olympic Committee has filed an appeal with CAS
seeking to strip Hamilton of his gold medal and give it to silver
medalist Vyacheslav Ekimov.
