Šterba set to compete in the Olympics

International canoe authorities have cancelled a six-month doping ban on a member of the Czech Republic's sprint kayak crew. Jan Šterba tested positive for a banned stimulant during an Olympic qualifying event in Poland on May 17, receiving a six month ban. He appealed the decision saying he was unaware that a food supplement he used contained a banned substance. The Czech Canoe Federation has welcomed the decision. Šterba is part of the K4 crew.
