Gusmao Gone, Says Brazil

The Brazilian Swimming Federation has released news that the FINA Doping Panel has suspended Rebeca Gusmao for two years, dating back to a July 13, 2007, anti-doping control at the Pan American Games held in Rio de Janeiro. The case is not listed by FINA for the 2007 period, as yet, and is therefore deemed to be pending until the international federation declares or confirms otherwise.

But while checking, I noticed that Italy had three water polo suspensions last year, and in France there were six cases of suspensions at the nationals, five of them for cannabis. Some party back at the French nationals in November, it would seem!
