Olympic bronze medalist figure skater Carolina Kostner has been called to an Italian anti-doping hearing Friday regarding her ex-boyfriend, 2008 Olympic race-walking champion Alex Schwazer.
Schwazer tested positive for EPO in 2012, was excluded from the Olympics and banned for four years. Kostner will be asked about potentially being complicit in Schwazer’s doping when they were together.
Kostner, 27 and the second-oldest women’s figure skating medalist since 1928, previously announced she is sitting out the 2014-15 season. Kostner also won bronze at the World Championships in March.
