Former Olympic champ Schwazer probed over doping test

(ANSA) - Rome, September 27 - Italy's disgraced former Olympic walk champion Alex Schwazer has been put under investigation for the positive drugs test that led to him missing this year's London Games, judicial sources said Thursday. Test results released last month days before he was due to defend the 50km walk title he won in 2008 in Beijing showed traces of the EPO blood-boosting hormone were in his urine samples. Doping is a criminal offence in Italy.
