Ludger Beerbaum, the German equestrian competitor in the Olympics, has been found guilty of riding a doped horse at the Athens Olympics.

Germany will lose the gold medal, and it will pass to the USA, unless the Germans appeal.

Beerbaum's horse, Goldfever, was confirmed as being doped; however, Beerbaum denies it, the steroids "apparently" were in a skin ointment.

Beerbaum's failing was to report the use of medication by team veterinarians.
