The Cielo case is a disaster for the sport, says Pieter van den Hoogenband


The positive test of Brazilian swimmer Cesar Cielo is a disaster for the sport, according to triple Olympic Champion Pieter van den Hoogenband. “This is terrible”, says Pieter, “swimming is at the Olympics on par with athletics”. “The sport is so popular because it was clean, the swimming had no doping affairs. Disastrous, that this happens with a big name.” Source Hollandswimming, probably clumsily translated by me and Google Translate.
