Fraser breaks silence on taking banned Oxycodone

In a widely circulated statement issued yesterday, Fraser explained in detail why she took the painkiller at the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Diamond League meeting in Shanghai, China on May 23. She said it was her disappointment in being beaten by an 'unimaginable margin' and 'confusion' caused by the narcotic that led to her failure to declare it following the women's 100m race."
