Event Notes: Spanish Anti-Doping Authorities Show Up At Wrong Hotel To Test Cyclist
Spanish anti-doping authorities "were not able to carry out a test on Tour of Spain winner Chris Horner on Monday after they showed up at the wrong hotel." The Spanish authorities "had been asked to carry out the test on behalf" of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (AFP, 9/16). ... In a reversal of its stand, the Union home ministry on Monday "granted visa to players of Pakistan's T20 team Faisalabad Wolves to stay in Chandigarh, a day after they were unceremoniously asked to go to Mohali after they had checked in a hotel in Chandigarh." Faisalabad Wolves players "were on Sunday asked to leave the hotel in Chandigarh after they had checked in and asked to go to Mohali because their visas were marked only for that Punjab town" (PTI, 9/16).
