2008 Irish Olympian Investigated for Illegal Betting

With the Olympics under way an unnamed Irish Olympic team member from the 2008 squad is being investigated for placing bets against themselves and instead on an opponent as reported by the BBC. The unnamed athlete is believed to be competing at the current 2012 Olympics and has been informed of the current allegations. This will be a story to follow up on once the Olympics conclude and more information becomes available. This just goes to show that every level of competition can be corrupted but even more sad because this is for his or her country in this case.
