Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : August 8th 2014 Contents LAUSANNE---Olympic
medalist Jock Paget was
cleared in a doping case
yesterday after a panel
ruled that he was not to
blame for his horse s
positive test at an inter-
national event in Eng-
land last year.
A contaminated med-
ication caused the pos-
itive test, an International
Equestrian Federation tri-
"The tribunal finds
that (Paget) has succeed-
ed in establishing that he
bears no fault or negli-
gence for the rule viola-
tion," the FEI ruling said.
The verdict lifting the
threat of a ban on Paget
was published two weeks
before the World Eques-
trian Games start in Nor-
mandy, France. He was
provisionally named in
the New Zealand team in
"It is complete relief,"
Paget said in a statement
published on the New
Zealand equestrian fed-
eration's website. "I feel
as though I had my
career stripped from me
and now someone has
said hang on, you can
have it back.'"
However, Paget and his
horse Clifton Promise
remain disqualified from
their eventing victory at
Burghley last year
because of the presence
of reserpine. They helped
New Zealand win event-
ing team bronze at the
2012 London Olympics.
Equestrian Sports New
Zealand president Chris
Hodson said the verdict
was important to the
"That Jock Paget has
proved his innocence,
which requires a very
high standard which has
only been achieved in one
previous case, is intensely
satisfying," Hodson said.
The sedative was
traced to a medication
known as LesstressE,
which had been regularly
administered to Paget's
horses without causing a
positive test. "The tribu-
nal therefore believes that
(Paget) had the right to
rely on the product," the
Still, the tribunal noted
the rider's "intention to
enhance the horse's per-
Paget "had adminis-
tered the product in order
to prevent the horse from
refusing its feed and
drinks, and from chang-
ing its metabolic func-
tion, especially around
competition times, when
the horse was stressed,"
the tribunal said. The 30-
year-old rider began
serving a provisional sus-
pension last October after
the test result was con-
firmed. The ban was lift-
ed in June after Paget tes-
tified at a FEI disciplinary
hearing in London.
In a similar but sepa-
rate case, the FEI also
cleared Australian rider
Kevin McNab of blame
for his horse Clifton Pinot

Jock Paget with horse Clifton Promise which tested positive for a banned
Olympic medalist Paget
wins horse doping case
Djokovic upset by Tsonga
in Rogers Cup third round
Djokovic was beaten 6-2, 6-2 by 13th-
seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in a third-
round upset at the Rogers Cup yes-
Djokovic came in with 11 straight
wins over Tsonga but was nowhere near
adding a 12th.
Tsonga's serve gave Djokovic plenty
of trouble. The Frenchman had only
eight aces, but Djokovic continually
struggled to keep his returns in play.
Serving on match point, Tsonga
clinched the win when Djokovic's return
went wide. Tsonga did some shadow
boxing and jumped up and down before
waving to a receptive crowd. Djokovic
never looked comfortable in Toronto,
his first tournament since winning
Wimbledon last month. Four days later,
he married his longtime girlfriend.
On Wednesday, Djokovic needed
three tough sets to outlast Gael Monfils
6-2, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (2) in the second
round. He beat Tsonga in the 2008
Australian Open final for his first major
title. Tsonga will play eighth-seeded
Andy Murray in the quarterfinals. Mur-
ray advanced when third-round oppo-
nent Richard Gasquet withdrew because
of an abdominal strain.
Djokovic's defeat was the second big
upset of the day. Third-seeded Stan
Wawrinka of Switzerland had earlier
lost 7-6 (8), 7-5 to South Africa's Kevin
