Troicki: individual victim of institutions?
Just a few minutes ago Viktor Troicki and his manager, Corrado Tschabuschnig found out that the ITF declared Troicki suspended for 18 months for refusing to give a blood sample at a doping control test in Monte Carlo. Tennisphotoworld joint the press conference of Troicki and Tschabuschnig who gave a whole different view on this case. First Troicki is too astonished to talk and his manager gives a declaration.
“On the given day, April 15th, Troicki woke up feeling not well and dizzy. He lost his match to Jarkko Nieminem in straight sets. He went to the doping control after his match where he first was supposed to give a blood and urine sample. He was still feeling dizzy and has always been afraid of needles. Sometimes it takes more than an hour to give a blood sample. The doctor saw the state Troicki was in and gave him permission to just give an urine sample and a written document in which Troicki gave an explanation why he did not give a blood sample. This was exactly what Troicki did.” The next day he heard he had to give the blood sample nonetheless. Which he did. No single test has ever been founded positive.”
“I have never taken any substitute that is prohibited and I never thought of taking it. I’m always clean,” declares Troicki with tears in his eyes.”
