Austrian Swimming Federation to investigate Dinko Jukic’s doping issue - Swimming News
Anti-doping officers of the Austrian Swimming Federation are taking necessary measures to investigate the doping test issue of Austrian swimmer, Dinko Jukic.
Officials declared that the need for an independent inquiry upon the Austrian swimmer aroused after he missed the scheduled doping test of the international sports governing body, Federation Internationale de Natation (FINA), last week.
FINA officials demanded Jukic to undergo an anti-doping test before his training session at the pool on May 27, 2011. Dinko hesitated to undergo the FINA organised doping test, expressing his concern about the cleanliness and health issues at the pool.
After raising his hygienic concerns, Dinko entered the pool, while FINA agents left the pool 15 minutes before the end of his training session. After the conclusion of his training, the swimmer uttered that he was expecting that the FINA officials will wait
for him until the end of his training session.
Jukic is an Austrian expert for the butterfly and Individual Medley (IM) events. He won the gold medal in 400m IM at the 2008 European Short Course Championships, along with a gold medal in the 200m butterfly at the 2010 European Championships. The 22-year-old
is Austria’s prime hope for the upcoming 2011 Shanghai World Championships, this July.
The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) said that their penal committee is scrutinising the issue, that whether the national swimmer has violated the code of conduct governed by FINA. The committee said that necessary action will be taken if the FINA rules
are desecrated, while an enquiry will take place during the next two months.
The Austrian was happy that NADA will look into his case and said, “I am glad that NADA will fully clarify this case. It’s important to me that an independent committee properly finds out that I didn’t do anything wrong.”
Jukic is one of the key players of Swimming Austria for the 2012 London Olympics. In addition, NADA officials said they cannot make any comment on the issue at the moment, whereas, the proof of guiltiness can suspend Jukic for two years from the sport.
