Australia’s controversial men’s freestyle relay team will be punished by the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) on Friday.
The six Australian men’s freestyle swimmers face sanctions including loss of AOC funding as a result of their ill-fated bonding session before last year’s London Olympics.
The swimmers – Eamon Sullivan, Matt Targett, James Magnussen, James Roberts, Tommaso D’Orsogna and Cameron McEvoy – have already been fined and given suspended sentences by Swimming Australia.
But the specific penalties from Swimming Australia have not been detailed, beyond the sport’s peak body saying the swimmers were fined and given “deferred suspensions for breaches of their behavioural obligations”.
