In 2007, a swimmer tested positive to an illegal substance during the World Military Swimming Championship in Hyderabad (India). Disciplinary proceedings followed and the World Anti-Doping Agency (“WADA”) appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (“CAS”), which ordered results made by the swimmer between October 2007 and August 2008 cancelled. He was also disqualified for two years from February 6, 2008.
