More 'Oil for Drugs' verdicts made

Three more athletes were handed down sentences on Friday in relation to the "Oil for Drugs" investigation at the federal appeals court in Rome. The latest names were subjects of Italy's Anti-Narcotics Group (NAS) raids in Brunico (Bolzano) in 2004. Cyclist David Bonuccelli was sentenced to a two years' suspension for possession of banned substances, while Masters racer Renzo Asci (Master 3) was given a lifetime ban for using and trafficking banned substances with "the clear purpose of financial gain."

Another masters racer, Claudio Terenzi was acquitted of the attempted use of substances and/or doping methods.
