World champion pole vaulter Shawn Barber was allowed to compete at Rio Olympics after blaming positive cocaine test on Craigslist romance

Pole vault world champion Shawn Barber was allowed to compete at the Rio Olympics despite testing positive for cocaine.
The Canadian's claims that he inadvertently ingested the recreational drug during a sexual encounter with a woman he met on Craigslist were accepted by the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada, meaning he was clear to take part in the Games this summer.
Barber's account of the Edmonton tryst stated that he accidentally consumed the banned substance after kissing the woman who, without his knowledge, had taken cocaine before their hotel rendezvous.
