HIGH JUMPER ACCUSED OF DRINKING VODKA AND RED BULLS DURING TRACK MEET

IVAN OKHOV

Rival high jumpers have accused Ivan Ukhov of drinking vodka and Red Bulls during a competition in Switzerland this week. Organizers of the track meet were reportedly so angry with Ukhov that they refused to pay his travel expenses and have asked for a tape of the event.

Ukhov was talked into dropping out of the meet after missing every jump he made. Alcohol is not considered a “performance enhancing” drug and is not technically illegal and therefore not prohibited in internationally sanctioned track meets.
