In other news also on The Swimmers Circle, FINA knew of Cielo’s positive test prior to the Paris Open, but FINA President Julio Maglione and CBDA President Coaracy Nunes decided that it was best to wait until after the meet to let the athletes know of the positive test. The Swimmers Circle speculates that this seems to make it even less likely that FINA will overturn the CBDA ruling that it was accidental cross-contamination of a non-performance enhancing substance
