The Australian swimming team was abandoned after it was revealed that freestyle swimmer Shayna Jack had to withdraw from the World Championships because she did not break a doping test.

Jack had dropped out just a few days before the race, citing personal reasons, but it was revealed on Saturday that she had tested positive for a banned substance – the moral high level of a team infected that was incredibly vocal about drug use in athletes.

The American breaststroke champion Lilly King was the first to play and told reporters that she was the 20-year-old swimmer as a & # 39; drug addict & # 39; regards.

& # 39; She (Jack) is a drug trader, & # 39; said King.

Australian team leader Cate Campbell said that no member of the Dolphins team was aware of Jack's positive test until it was splashed about the news.

& # 39; I had absolutely no knowledge of this tonight. The only thing I knew before was that it was a personal issue and that we respected her privacy & she said.

& # 39; I think we should respect the process. We stand for clean sport and I think that the fact that Shayna is not present at the moment reinforces that attitude. & # 39;

Jack confirmed the positive test on Instagram, but said she wasn't & # 39; aware & # 39; used a prohibited substance.

& # 39; I have NOT intentionally used this substance. Swimming has been my passion since I was 10 years old and I would never intentionally use a forbidden substance that would not respect my sport and jeopardize my career, & she placed.

& # 39; Now there is an ongoing investigation and my team and I are doing everything to find out when and how this substance came into contact with my body. & # 39;

Jack said she found the allegations & # 39; very difficult to process & # 39; found.

Revelations of Jack's failed test come after a series of strong moves by the Australian team to expose cheats, with Mack Horton's most notable refusal to stand next to Chinese swimmer Sun Yang.

Horton refused to join Sun – who was banned from drugs in 2014 – on stage after the Chinese star relegated him to 400 m freestyle silver, creating an international furore.

Swimmers were angry that Sun was allowed to contest the titles prior to a hearing with sports arbitration in September that could end the career of the 11-time world champion.

He faces a lifelong ban if he is found guilty of allegations that he smashed bottles of his blood with a hammer in a collision with testers in September 2018.

However, Sun claimed that he stood up for other athletes during the now notorious collision.

Sun has maintained his innocence and said his presence at the championships is a protest in itself, against unauthorized drug testing.

He took a final excavation with his greatest critic, Horton, on Friday evening before leaving Gwangju, South Korea.

& # 39; There are millions of swimmers in the world. A few guys won't have any influence on me, & the 200 and 400-meter gold and medal winner told reporters.

& # 39; I don't want to argue with those haters. Mack will then simply answer and the whole thing escalates and turns into a tit-for-tat. & # 39;
