Another Singapore national swimmer, Teong Tzen Wei, is being investigated for possible drug offences, according to SportSG on 28 September.
This comes in the wake of national swimmers Joseph Schooling and Amanda Lim admitting to consuming cannabis.
The three national athletes are also suspended from the reception of support from SportsSG for a month, which includes access to their facilities and services.
SportSG said that the trio had tested negative for drug use while being investigated by CNB, but had admitted to using drugs while on duty overseas as athletes of TeamSG.
SportSG has since issued them warning letters following the culmination of an internal review last week. and considered their full cooperation and remorse during the internal review process.
They are also reportedly appealing for a second chance to prove themselves.
Teong will also have his “spexScholar” scholarship benefits suspended for a month, where athletes under the scheme get monthly stipends.
