As I told you before, Lubomir tested positive to a stimulant found in his cold medicine, it seems that he was taking pseudoephedrine, that is besides being a stimulant, is a nasal decongestant. In fact it was rumored that he was taking Advil Cold and Sinus to treat his flu. Before taking the medicine he allegedly talked to the Slovakia National Team’s doctor, Dr Dalimir Jancovic; Lubomir was tested a few days later exactly before Slovakia’s match against Canada , the results were negative, he was not disqualified just got away with a reprimand given by the IOC. Although I am not so sure what will happen to Dr. Jancovic.
