Halkia carries flame

02.11.2009 World

Agencies are writing that IOC has not been happy that Greek Olympic officials let a hurdler serving a doping ban take part in the Vancouver flame relay.

IOC spokeswoman Emmanuelle Moreau says it was „inappropriate and a regrettable mistake“ for Greek officials to let disgraced hurdler Fani Halkia carry the flame Wednesday. Halkia is Olympic gold medalist at 400 m hurdles in 2004 and is banned until Sep 10, 2010.
