The International Swimming Federation (FINA) opened an investigation after the testimony of the Canadian swimmer Mary Sophie Harvey, who says she was drugged at the end of her participation in the recent World Cup in Budapest.

Harvey, 22, told Wednesday on his Instagram account who was drugged on the last night of the competition, at the end of June.

In a statement transmitted to AFP, FINA said it was “deeply concerned” for the “well-being” of the swimmer and claimed to be in contact with the Canadian Swimming Federation and the Hungarian Organizing Committee.

“An independent agent has been appointed, who is investigating. FINA will provide updated information at the appropriate time”, specifies the instance, which recalls that it approved in 2021 measures aimed at protecting swimmers.

Mary Sophie Harvey claims she woke up “completely lost” the morning after the last night of the World Cup, with “dozens of bruises” on his body.

The athlete affirms that she celebrated the night before “reasonable” way the end of the competition but has no recollection of it.

“There’s a four to six hour window in which I have no recollection,” he wrote.

At the World Cup in Budapest, Mary Sophie Harvey won a bronze medal as part of the 4×200 meter relay team.
