>Australian bobsledder Travis Sheehy has been banned from competing in any sport for two years after he was caught trying to ship banned performance-enhancing drugs into the country.
Australia’s Sports Anti-Doping Agency began investigating the 32-year-old Sheehy after Australian customs intercepted a package containing the anabolic steroids methandienone and stanozolol. The doping agency said Friday it had determined the package was intended for Sheehy and that he also had used banned substances.
Sheehy, also a competitive surf lifesaver, initially contested the ban but recently withdrew his appeal with the Australian Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Sheehy had been a member of the Australian bobsled team since 1987 and was an alternate on the team that competed in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
