Slovenian ice hockey player Ziga Jeglic tests positive for banned substance

Slovenian ice hockey player Ziga Jeglic tests positive for banned substance

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says Jeglic tested positive for fenoterol in an in-competition test. Fenoterol is a drug created to open the airways to the lungs, usually used to treat acute asthma.

Winless in Pyeongchang before Tuesday, Norway erased a one-goal deficit in the third period to force the sudden-death period and went on to register their first Olympic hockey win since they hosted the Games in 1994.

Ziga Jeglic accepted an anti-doping rule violation and, as a effect, is suspended from competing in the remainder of the Olympic Winter Games.

Slovenia played Norway in men's hockey on Tuesday, but Jeglic was scratched from the team. "We were kind of disappointed and a little upset that he won't be able to play, but we don't really know what the situation is", Slovenia captain Jan Mursak said after the loss to Norway.

The Slovenian Olympic Committee said Jeglic had agreed to leave, despite the fact that only the "A" sample had been examined.

Alexander Krushelnitsky, who won bronze in the mixed doubles curling with his wife Anastasia Bryzgalova, was also the subject of a procedure at the anti-doping division of CAS, which handles doping cases during the Games.

Japanese speed skater Kei Saito was sent home from the Olympic village last week after returning a positive drug test, the first athlete to do so at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

The Russian delegation has suggested Krushelnitckii, who tested positive for the banned heart medication meldonium, did not take the drug knowingly.

Russian Federation was banned from the 2018 Winter Olympic Games following state-sponsored doping, leading up to and including the 2014 Sochi Winter Games.

But 168 Russian athletes declared clean after extensive checking were allowed to compete in Pyeongchang as neutrals, under the banner of "Olympic Athletes from Russia".
