International Olympic Committee head Jacques Rogge said Saturday that Jan Ullrich could be stripped of his Olympic gold and silver medals from the Games in 2000 because of the admitted doping within the Telekom team. The IOC announced earlier this week that it was forming a disciplinary committee to investigate possible anti-doping violations in the Olympic games. "The IOC will investigate the revelations that have been made by the riders from Telekom, because several of them took part in the Olympic Games," Rogge said, according to the Belgian newspaper Le Soir.
