Polish swimmer gets 6-month doping ban
Polish swimmer Mirela Olczak has been suspended for six months after testing positive for a banned stimulant. Swimming’s world governing body, known as Fina, says Olczak tested positive for methylhexaneamine at the Grand Prix of Poland meeting last November. Fina says the Polish swimming federation imposed the ban, which expires May 11. Olczak won consecutive European junior titles in the 200-metre butterfly in 2008 and ’09. She was ranked No 43 in the world in the event last year. http://www.supersport.com/aquatics/international-news/news/120412/Polish_swimmer_gets_6month_doping_ban
