Busch eligible for Germany Olympic hockey team

Florian Busch has become eligible to play for Germany’s Olympic

hockey team after signing an anti-doping pledge.

Busch had a two-year ban lifted by Switzerland’s highest appeals

court in November. The ban had been imposed by the Court of

Arbitration for Sport after Busch refused to take a drug test

because he was at home relaxing with his girlfriend when the

testers arrived unannounced. He took – and passed – the test

several hours later.

On Tuesday, the 24-year-old forward signed the pledge. It’s

required by the National anti-Doping Agency for all Olympic team

members.
