ATHENS, Greece - Greek officials found 641 boxes containing food supplements with the stimulant ephedrine in a warehouse used by Christos Tsekos, the coach at the center of a doping scandal involving star sprinters Kostas Kenteris and Katerina Thanou, a judicial source said Saturday.
The search was part of a probe into whether 2000 Olympic medalists Kenteris and Thanou tried to avoid a doping test on the eve of the Athens Games by staging a motorcycle accident. A Greek judicial source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the food supplements ? which are unlicensed in Greece ? were ordered taken from Tsekos last year but the coach got them back somehow. The source also said a supplement sample was sent off for testing.
Officials first became aware of the Tsekos? connection to supplements last year when a consumer complained about getting ill from them. Tsekos was fined $18,300. Michalis Dimitrakopoulos, Tsekos? lawyer, said all the imports were legal and there were documents to prove it.
