Walter Mayer, a former Austrian skiing coach, has been given a prison sentence after being found guilty of supplying doping substances to athletes. He has been sentenced to 15 months in jail, with 12 months of that sentence suspended for a period of 3 years, and having already served several weeks in custody following his arrest....Mayer was arrested in March 2009, after being charged with providing several top athletes with banned substances between 2005 and 2009. After being implicated in a blood transfusion scandal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, he was banned by the International Olympic Committee from attending the Turin Games and the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver after being reappointed as head coach of Austria's cross-country team.
