Nicole Walker la amazona que daba positivo a un metabolito de la cocaína en los Panamericanos de Lima 2.019, ha declarado lo siguiente:
“I do not use illicit drugs, ever. Whether in Peru, or in any competition setting for that matter, I am always fully aware of the possibility of being tested and would never expose myself to any substance that could test positive.
My Canadian teammates, my team in the barn, our horses and I, have all put a lifetime of effort towards an Olympic goal and I would never do anything to jeopardise that for my teammates or for myself.
I’m extremely grateful to everyone for their support and to my teammates for standing with me.”
