Australian Olympic medalist kayaker arrested after drug bust
(Reuters) - Australian dual Olympic silver medal-winning kayaker Nathan Baggaley has been arrested following a drug bust, local media reported on Sunday.
Australian Federal Police, investigating amphetamine trafficking, arrested the 37-year-old Baggaley and another person on Friday in northern New South Wales.
Baggaley, who won two silver medals in the 2004 Athens Olympics, faces seven charges, including manufacturing and producing a prohibited drug, the Australian Associated Press (AAP) news agency reported.
He has been remanded in custody and is expected to appear in a Lismore court on Monday.
