Statement from the AOC re: Nathan Baggaley

21 December 2005

The AOC recognises the 15 month penalty imposed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on dual Olympic kayak silver medallist Nathan Baggaley.

Under the AOC Doping Policy an athlete who has committed a doping offence may have to repay any AOC funding they have received.

A decision on Nathan Baggaley’s funding will be made after the AOC Executive Board considers the full CAS judgement which is not available till January.

Baggaley received $7,500 for his silver medal in the K1 in Athens and was due another $10,000 from the AOC for his World Championship gold medal in 2005.

Baggaley tested positive to stanozolol and methandienone in an out of competition test in September.

But the 29-year-old Baggaley told the CAS hearing the banned substances had entered his system unbeknown to him via a glass of orange juice.

The Court accepted Baggaley's claim and downgraded his punishment from two years to 15 months.
