Lebanese Skier Tests Positive For Cocaine – More White Powder On The White Powder


What is it with skiers and cocaine these days? Just last week we brought you the story of wannabe skiers who brought drugs to cops, hoping to score some free lift tickets. Now, a member of the Lebanese ski team (which apparently exists) has tested positive for coke.

Georges Salameh tested positive for cocaine following the skiing world championships in France last month. He now faces up to a 2 year suspension from the International Skiing Federation (FIS).

According to FIS secretary general Sarah Lewis, “The ‘B’ Sample confirmed the results of the ‘A’ sample containing the prohibited substance benzoylecgonine—a metabolite of cocaine—from the test in Val d’Isere.”


Salameh is the national champion of Lebanon in slalom and giant slalom. As for how he fared at the world championships, he completed neither event, as he presumably was coked out of his mind.
