Amaury Leveaux: ‘We used drugs at the London Olympics’


On April 22, former swimmer Amaury Leveaux publishes an explosive autobiography titled “Sex, drugs and swimming”, depicting a vitriolic portrait of the French swim team between lines of cocaine and unbridled sex. ‘Some of us didn’t frown upon a line from time to time, while it for others was not a line, but a highway of white powder that was sniffed at light speed’.

He describes how they used it both at parties and during competitions – where it is doping classified.
