Former Australia Olympian Oliver Dziubak accused of selling anabolic steroids

A former Olympian has appeared in Kalgoorlie Magistrates Court after being charged with illegally selling anabolic steroids.

Javelin thrower Oliver Dziubak and his former partner Brooke Dziubak, who operated four pharmacies in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, had each been charged with one count of selling or supplying a prohibited drug. Dziubak did not enter a plea and was granted bail with a $2,000 surety. He is due to face the Kalgoorlie Magistrates Court again on April 21. Ms Dziubak’s defence counsel, Seamus Rafferty, indicated she would plead not guilty. The case against her was adjourned to a committal mention hearing on June 23. Both accused were registered pharmacists with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Detective Constable Paul Lines said Kalgoorlie detectives executed a search warrant at the couple’s home in January and seized “numerous exhibits”. He said police allege the pair had been supplying anabolic steroids to a “local identity”. He said the charges were concerning, because the accused held “a position of trust in the community” as pharmacists. Dziubak made his Olympic debut at the Athens 2004 Games where he finished 19th and claimed bronze at the 2006 Commonwealth Games. AHPRA declined to comment on whether it was investigating either pharmacist. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-03-24/oliver-dziubak-olympian-appears-court-steroids-charges/7275506
