Police investigate Korean marathon coach
20 June 2011

Police in South Korea have placed the country's marathon head coach Jeong Man-hwa under investigation for allegedly injecting athletes with illegal substances.

"We are in the process of investigating whether the coach provided illegal drugs to 10 athletes," a police spokesperson said.

Jeong, whose runners include an Asian Games gold medallist, was defended by the Korea Anti-Doping Agency, who said the athletes took only vitamins and nothing banned.

"The police have visited us about this doping-related case," a KADA spokesman said. "They are looking for precise evidence of these stamina-boosting injections."

South Korean athletics officials said they expected the police to conclude their investigation by the end of the week but no evidence of wrongdoing had been found so far.

The police investigation comes on the heels of an embarrassing football match-fixing scandal in which 10 K-League players were banned for life last week.
