What about the British skier who lost a gold medal because he used a vics nasal inhaler bought in USA. He had a bad cold and had taken it to help his breathing. I think his name was Ghraham Bell but I am not sure he had used it in Uk but the American one had something in it which was not allowed. So he lost his medal.
Thanks for that LB - that was the sportsman I was referring to in my post @1:09 am. I knew the story but couldn't remember the sport!
EDIT - Actually it was Alain Baxter, whose bronze medal was taken away from him, even although the BOC stood by him and even funded the costs of his appeal, which he lost. Graham Bell, who is regarded as the greatest British skier ever, did though go on record as saying he thought the decision was disgraceful and that Baxter hadn't knowingly done anything wrong.
