Matthew Willenbring - Texas

Update: Matthew Willenbring (USA) will forfeit the bronze medal he claimed at the World Junior Championships in Indianapolis last year after being handed a four-month ban for a positive Hydrochlorothiazide (Class S5 Diuretics and Masking Agents) test on the day he claimed his second medal of the meet. The bronze in the 100m freestyle is now bound for his teammate, Daniel Krueger, the 4x100m medley gold with mates must go – but the gold Willenbring took with 4x100m mixed medley teammates three days before his positive is likely to stand, unless USA Swimming decides to hand it back. Russian boys take 4×100 gold and the world junior record
