Doping case agst Schwazer dismissed

(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 18 – A Bolzano court on Thursday dismissed
a doping case against retired 2008 Olympic 50k walk champion
Alex Schwazer, saying his urine tests had been altered.
    The court said the international athletics federation (IAAF) and
the world anti-doping agency (WADA) had been “opaque” in the
longrunning case, which forced Schwazer to retire from the 2016
    The court was highly critical of the two organisations.
    It said it was “highly likely” that the walker’s urine samples
had been tampered with in 2016, in order to falsely give him a
positive test.
    The court said Schwazer, 36, “did not commit the crime” – the
fullest possible acquittal formula. (ANSA).
