Olympic swimmer Geoff Huegill busted with Cocaine!

April 28, 2014


Olympic swimmer Geoff Huegill and his wife, Sara Hills, will appear in court after they were allegedly found carrying cocaine at the races in Sydney.

NSW police were patrolling Randwick racecourse on Saturday when they were directed to a suite in the grandstand by security personnel.

They say officers spoke to a 35-year-old man and his 30-year-old wife, who stand accused of possessing a small quantity of white powder, which the police allege was cocaine.

The couple will appear in Waverley Local Court on May 14.

Two-time Olympic medallist Huegill is the latest high-profile Australian swimmer to find himself in the spotlight.

Olympic greats Ian Thorpe and Grant Hackett have both spent time in rehab this year.

Thorpe has been treated for depression and alcohol abuse while Hackett recently returned from a stint in the US for a sleeping pill addiction.

Huegill battled weight problems after retiring from swimming following the 2004 Athens Olympics.

He turned his life around by losing 45 kilograms and returning to the pool, winning the 100m butterfly at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

    Is there anyone left from the Sydney 2000 Olympics Swimming team who isn’t on drugs…??

    I doubt their substance use was much greater than the general population. They probably had better drugs, though.

    The odium of being found in a disabled toilet at Randwick Racecourse, he’ll never live it down.

    the disabled get very cranky when the able bodied use the one toilet devoted to them, very socially unacceptable…and to use drugs too!
    i agree the drug use is probably no different to heaps of others, just more media attention because they are high profile.

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
