Rogers Medals – 8 Years on!
Australian Michael Rogers has picked up another Olympic medal for Australia, even though he was not taking part in the recently finished London Games.
Back in Athens in 2004 Rogers finished fourth in the road race time trial, and missed out on a medal. The gold went to American Tyler Hamilton, silver to Viatcheslav Ekimov of Russia and bronze to Bobby Julich from the USA. However following Hamilton’s recent admission of doping the IOC have announced that they will be stripping him of his Gold medal and assigning the medals.
The IOC asked for the documents from the US anti Doping Agency before re-allocating the medals.
