Mr Alain Baxter And His Olympic Medal
That this House believes that Scottish skier and British bronze medallist Alain Baxter should not have had his medal revoked by the International Olympic Committee, and while deploring misuse of drugs in sport has absolutely no reason to doubt Mr Baxter's explanation that the methamphetamine substance entered his system through the totally innocent means of a US Vicks Vapor Inhaler; notes news reports that a letter from the testing laboratory said that the level of methamphetamine was so little that it could not have enhanced Mr Baxter's performance; regrets that the IOC did not take a more lenient view of this case; expresses its hope that Mr Baxter will not be banned from future sporting events; and further believes that Alain Baxter has behaved with dignity throughout this difficult period and remains a strong sporting role model for youngsters in Scotland and throughout the United Kingdom.
This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
