Athletics Canada said on Thursday that Canadian world champion pole vaulter Shawnacy Barber was at the Rio Olympics despite earlier testing positive for cocaine but the decision to allow him to compete was the right one.

The Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada’s ruling was released yesterday, and said Barber inadvertently ingested the banned substance during a sexual encounter the night before the Canadian Olympic trials in July with a woman he met online who had taken Cocaine.

Barber, who set a Canadian record and won the national title the following day, had faced a possible two-year ban imposed by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport but was ruled no fault or negligence for an anti-doping rule violation by an independent arbitrator
