Why sports stars mix with drugs


Read Courier Mail

Huegill’s achievement and the healthy lifestyle message that he marketed set him up for life. Then came the news this week that he and his wife Sara had been charged with possession of cocaine following a day at Randwick races.

While the charges have yet to be heard by a court, as Huegill’s former business partner Keith Saggers so rightly said, the question remains how forgiving the Australian public will be over the allegations. Much of Huegill’s income came from motivational speaking; basically recounting his gut to gold life story for $10,000 a pop. But who will pay to hear a fairytale if it doesn’t have a happy ending?

The other problem for Huegill is that he is a swimmer, not a footballer, tennis player or cricketer.
