Disgraced sprinters trial postponed again
  • September 23rd, 2010

Katerina Thanou and Konstantinos Kenteris are the two Greek sprinters that’s under trial for perjury.

Their case has been postponed for the sixth time yet again.

The postponement it seems was due to the high number of cases on the court’s list, and the trial will commences on January 12th next year.

The two Greeks are Olympic medallist; Kenteris won 200m gold, while Katerina nabbed the 100m silver at the Sydney 2000 edition.

Both have been accused of staging a motorcycle accident to avoid a doping test on the eve of the Athens Olympics in 2004, although no hard-proof has ever come to light, or they ever failing a doping test.

An official Greek investigation into their alleged accident ruled that it had been staged and the pair were criminally charged with making false statements to authorities.

They were tried in 2009 for making false statements to police.

However if there’s any delay to their perjury trial, the duo could walk away scot-free, as the statute of limitations on their charges runs out in 2012.

If found guilty, the duo could face up to two years in prison.
