Sebrle and Dvorak cleared
The world athletics governing body IAAF has announced it will not take any action against Czech decathletes Roman Sebrle and Tomas Dvorak over glucose injections they were given during the World Championship in Helsinki. The IAAF said in a statement that "a full investigation into alleged intravenous infusions by the athletes had been completed and it had been agreed that no further action would be taken". It was ascertained that the glucose injections were administered for medical reasons by the team doctor after the athletes complained they were dehydrated. This was allegedly performed in front of ten witnesses. While glucose is not a banned substance, injections are only allowed during competition for "legitimate and acute medical reasons".
