Sporting digest: Drugs in sport

Two candidates for Australia's Winter Olympic team for Nagano have tested positive for steroids, the AOC president John Coates confirmed yesterday. Coates said two bobsled competitors had tested positive for stanozolol, the steroid used by Canada's Ben Johnson at the 1988 Olympics. The tests were taken at an Olympic team assembly in Sydney in September but Coates has said that under current policy, the AOC will not name the two until a decision over a sanction is taken.
