Agence France Presse is reporting today that Thierry Cerez (who was French
national champion, not named to Nagano team in favor of Candeloro) failed
a drug test at Europeans and tested positive for steroids.  He is in
danger of being banned from skating for two years.

Cerez denies taking steroids (apparently, his test was just over the limit
and kind of iffy), Didier Gailhaguet is defending him.
