US swimmer Mike Alexandrov accepts 1-year doping ban


Mike Alexandrov, a former Bulgarian Olympian and U.S. national team member, has accepted a one-year doping ban.

The 32-year-old swimmer who lives in Los Angeles tested positive for benzoylecgonine and methylecgonine, which are metabolites of cocaine, as the result of a urine sample he provided at a meet in Santa Clara, California, last June.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced the ban Tuesday.
