Hungarian Olympic Committee chairman, Pal Schmitt, apologised yesterday for the doping incidents at the Athens Olympics involving his country's athletes.

He said that he was sorry that Hungarian athletes had cast a shadow over the Athens Games, with their doping infractions.

Three Hungarians lost their medals in Athens because of doping: hammer throw winner Adrian Annus, discus gold medalist Robert Fazekas and weightlifter Ferenc Gyurkovics, who won a silver. Two other weightlifters, Zoltan Kovacs and Zoltan Kecskes, also tested positive.
