LONDON, England, August 11. NEWS recently broke that Belgium's Fanny Lecluyse was sent home early from the 2012 London Olympics after what the Belgian Olympian Committee deemed was “inappropriate behavior.”

Shortly after information leaked that Belgian cyclist Gijs van Hoecke was sent home from the Olympics early after being unable to walk while trying to leave a London nightclub, Belgium also explained that Lecluyse was sent home.

Belgium media reports that Lecluyse, 20, returned to the Olympic village “appearing drunk at 3:30 a.m.” and that Belgium sent her home on Aug. 3. She had finished 19th in the 200 breast with a 2:27.30, just missing the semifinals by less than half-a-second.
