Brazilian club admits doping own players
Brazilian club Athletico Paranaense has admitted two of its players tested positive for doping because of medication from its own staff.
Club president Mario Celso Petraglia said in a news conference on Monday that defender Thiago Heleno and midfielder Camacho were given higenamine, a supplement for weight loss forbidden by doping authorities.
CONMEBOL has already suspended Heleno. Camacho was preemptively suspended from club activities.
Petraglia said the players were victims, and promised an internal investigation.
