Cyclist awaits police report

The reputation and Olympic fate of former world cycling track champion Jobie Dajka could hinge on a South Australian police report.

Investigator Robert Anderson received the report after SA police investigated the origin of vials of equine growth hormone, found late last year in the Adelaide room of banned cyclist Mark French.

The French affair took another twist when the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) announced it was withholding final consideration on Dajka's Athens selection.

The AOC is anxiously awaiting Anderson's report on the police investigation before approving Dajka for Athens or denying him selection.

Cycling Australia (CA) officially submitted its 25 Olympic nominations, including Dajka, to the AOC.

"The SA police have spoken to Justice Anderson and they are furnishing him with a copy of their report," a spokesman for Anderson said.

"He will make sure it falls within his terms of reference and will probably make an addendum to his report."

The spokesman added this would happen "as soon as possible".

This time last week, Anderson submitted his original report to CA, the AOC and the Australian Sports Commission (ASC).

The report focussed on Dajka and four other former track world champions - Graeme Brown, Sean Eadie, Shane Kelly and Brett Lancaster - all of whom are in CA's Athens nominations.
