Swimmer Rick DeMont,16, left, tells a news conference in San Francisco Sept. 8,1972 that "I feel I got burned." DeMont was talking about the Olympic gold medal he won in the 400-meter freestyle at Munich but lost when the International Olympic Committee stripped him of the title because traces of the drug ephedrine were detected in his system aftrer the race. The drug was a medicine DeMont had been taking for about a year for asthma. At right is coach Don Swartz, who developed the San Rafael high school student into a record breaker. (AP Photo/Sal Veder)
