FEATURES

008 MADISYN COX RULED INELIGIBLE TO COMPETE IN INTERNATIONAL SWIMMING LEAGUE
by David Rieder
Madisyn Cox, who was suspended from swimming last year after recording a positive test for the banned substance trimetazidine, later got her suspension reduced from two years to six months after proving that the positive test resulted from a contaminated supplement. However, a representative of the International Swimming League confirmed that Cox will be ineligible to compete in the ISL even though she was cleared of wrongdoing when her suspension was reduced.

010 MADISYN COX FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST COOPER CLINIC FOR NEGLIGENCE
Madisyn Cox filed suit against an affiliate of the Dallas-based Cooper Clinic, the manufacturer of a tainted supplement that led to her suspension from swimming last year. She is pursuing damages for the “significant reputational, financial and emotional consequences” caused by her suspension.

016 MICHAEL PHELPS AND TIGER WOODS: THE COMPETITIVE COMEBACK PARALLELS
by David Rieder
It’s impossible not to notice the parallels between Michael Phelps and Tiger Woods: two men who have redefined their respective sports…and two men who have reached the peak of the mountain in their sport half a lifetime apart…and two men who, even years past their most dominant respective primes, remained the primary draws for outsiders to tune into their sports.

018 RICHARD “DOC” HUNKLER, LEADING PROPONENT OF WOMEN’S WATER POLO, PASSES AWAY AT 83
by Michael Randazzo
As much as anyone over the past 40 years, Coach Richard Francis “Doc” Hunkler helped shape the sport of water polo in America. Hunkler, who passed away recently at the age of 83, changed the perception of women competing in sports, and helped elevate polo not only in the East, but nationally as well.
