Swimmer Park Tae-hwan’s doctor indicted for negligence


A doctor who allegedly injected a banned substance into South Korean swimmer Park Tae-hwan was indicted Friday on charges of professional negligence, prosecutors said.

The move comes after Park, a four-time Olympic medalist and two-time world champ, tested positive for testosterone in a recent World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) test. Park claimed the doctor had given him an injection without fully disclosing that it could contain a banned substance.
