Kenteris Saga Continues

Those of you with long memories may recall the sorry tale of Greek sprinter Kostas Kenteris and his partner, Katerina Thanou, who fell foul of the doping rules in the 2004 Olympics.

Well, th is sorry saga is not yet over.

Kenteris had to testify in front of a prosecutor yesterday, on charges of avoiding a doping test on the eve of the 2004 Olympics and faking the now infamous motorcycle accident hours later.

Thanou and coach Christos Tzekos have already given their testimony, on June 6.

Kenteris' lawyer, Michalis Dimitrakopoulos, is quoted as saying:

"Kenteris was set free without any conditions because there was not even the slightest indication that he committed the acts that are accredited to him,".

Doubtless this will go on and on.
