Friends of Australian swimmer Shayna Jack are concerned about her well-being after she tested positive for the prohibited substance Ligandrol.
The 20-year-old, who has not passed a test for the South Korea World Championships, will be banned for four years unless she can prove her innocence.
Swimming staff from Australia, radio personalities, as well as Jack's family and friends have assisted her while she is criticized by media and the public.
A four-year ban is the maximum penalty for swimmers caught with drugs classified as anabolic.
The freestyler, who has refused knowingly and forbidden to take drugs, will meet Friday with officials from the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority [ASADA] in Canberra.

Former ASADA CEO Richard Ings went to social media on Wednesday to express his concern about Jack.
& # 39; This morning in my gym I had the chance to chat with a double Olympic gold medalist Australian swimmer & # 39 ;, he wrote on Twitter.
& # 39; People worry about Mrs. Jack's well-being. This is only sport, but it is also the field of dreams.
& # 39; I also hope she has good support around her. & # 39;
Jack & # 39; s manager, Phil Stoneman, said she & # 39; blown away & # 39; was to hear the public support of KIIS 1065 radio presenters Kyle and Jackie O.
Sandilands described the strong repercussions of the media, the public and online trolls as & # 39; the grossest form of behavior & # 39 ;.
& # 39; We kick a 20-year-old girl while she's down. The worst time of her life, all those bastards on the websites are nipping her away and saying the worst things you can ever imagine, & he said.

Stoneman described Jack's possible four-year ban as a life ban, and said it is impossible for an athlete to put his career on hold for longer.
& # 39; She is back on the front page of the paper. She can't walk down the street, & Stoneman said.
& # 39; People have made a decision. Her life has literally changed within two weeks. It makes me a bit emotional because I just see what happened to this poor girl and it just doesn't make sense. & # 39;
