Leading Sydney barrister Bret Walker SC will head the Australian Olympic Committee‘s (AOC) investigation into drug use within the Australian swimming team.

James Magnussen and four other members of Australia’s 4×100 metres freestyle relay team confessed to taking the sedative Stilnox as part of a “bonding session” at a pre-Olympic camp.

The AOC says Walker will immediately begin investigating the drug incident and other reported misbehaviour.

Walker represented the AOC in its case against Nick D’Arcy in 2008 when the swimmer was banned from competing in the Beijing Olympic Games for assaulting team mate Simon Cowley.
