Angel Myers, dropped from the U.S. Olympic swim team after testing positive for steroid use, was ordered suspended from competition through 1989, according to a decision announced by the U.S. Swimming board of review.
The three-member board, meeting to decide a penalty against the swimmer following her failure to have the test findings overturned in appeal, also invalidated Myers' records and recalled the medals she won during the U.S. Long Course National Championships, the meet used to select the Olympic team.The board also ordered Myers to undergo "not less than three" random drug tests a year through 1992.
Myers, 21, was dropped from the Olympic team after tests revealed use of the steroid nandralone. Myers claimed unsuccessfully throughout the appeal process that her use of a birth-control pill had triggered a false reading.
