UJamie Kermond wase-Australia uvinjelwe ukuncintisana kuma-Olimpiki ase-Tokyo ngemuva kokutholakala kwe-cocaine emzimbeni wakhe.

UKermond uthi imiphumela iveze lokhu, ngenxa yokuthi kungenzeka ukuthi wathatha lesi sidakamizwa emcimbini wokuzijabulisa. Lo mdlali oneminyaka engama-36 ubudala uhlolwe kwabuya isampula eno-A mhla zingama-26 kuNhlangulana, kodwa umphumela wakhishwa emphakathini mhla zingama-21 kuNtulikazi ukhishwa yi-Sport Integrity e-Australia cishe ngemuva kwenyanga yokuhlolwa kwakhe.

Ephendula lezi zindaba, lo mdlali wase-Australia uthe: “Ngiphatheke kabi kakhulu futhi ngiyazisola ngokwenzekile, futhi ngiyawamukela umthwalo ngokuphelele. Ngiyaxolisa kakhulu ngoba ngiphoxe abantu abaningi kubandakanya umndeni wami kanye nabalingani beqembu.”

UKermond uqhubeke nokusho ukuthi unethemba lokuthi angaxolelwa ngelinye ilanga ngokuzibonakalisa ngezenzo ezingcono ngethemba lokuthi angaqhubeka nokuncintisana kwi-showjumping umdlalo othandwa kakhulu e-Australia.

Imibiko evela e-Australia ikhombisa ukuthi uKermond akazange aluthathe lolu hambo oluya e-Tokyo kule midlalo selokhu wamiswa yi-Australian Olympic Committee (AOC).

Ukumiswa okukhishwe yi-AOC kungenxa yokwephula umthetho wase-Australia izigaba eziningana esivumelwaneni neqembu nokubeka isithunzi sezemidlalo engozini ngokungathathi izinyathelo ezidingekayo zokuqinisekisa ukuthi usesimeni esethembekile ngokomzimba nangokwengqondo.

Lo mdlali oneminyaka engama-36, bekufanele adlale kuma-Olimpiki ale midlalo ehlelwe kabusha kodwa ukwehluleka ukuziphatha kumlahlekisele ngethuba lakhe lokuncintisana emidlalweni ehlonishwayo yama-Olimpiki.
