Shayna Jack begs money in $130,000 doping after "exhaustive life savings."
The banned Olympic swimmer Shayna Jack went to GoFundMe for continuing to combat a ban on doping, which now saves $130,000 in 'depleted life.'
Last week the 22 years-old admitted she had an emotional and financial struggle to even decide whether she had granted her struggle and retirement.
Now Jack wanted to stick to it, and asked Australians to support her defense against an appeal, as you can see in the previous video, so that her prohibition would have reappeared for four years.
Sport Integrity Australia appealed the November decision of the Court to cut the prohibition of Jack from four to two years. Sport Integrity Australia
Jack was initially banned on 26 June, about three weeks before World Swim Titles in South Korea, after having tested Ligandrol positive.
Queenslander appealed its ban on CAS which, after discovering that she did not ingeste the forbidden drug, reduced her suspension.
SIA, the successor to ASADA, then agreed to call for clarification on the anti-doping principles on the basis of the CAS Decision.
Jack asked the fans before her next audition "help me end my struggle, please," by donating GoFundMe to her.
At the time of publishing, almost $5000 was earned.
"To be in the pool with my team mates, my heart breaks every day," she said, talking in tears.
"These people in which I feel I'm continuously kicking down, every day it breaks my heart. Every day I can never win it crushing my heart.
"To continue to fight, I would like to ask for your support. If I do not fight I will get the full prohibition because I could not stand up for myself in my next call." I have no funds and I have no family.
Jack demanded that people offer "small sums."
The list of most $10, $50 or $100 spots comes with an anonymous $1000 donation as well as 3 $500 donations.
Jack seems to have been fading when she said she was "mentally exhausted" last week to return to the pool.
"I know many of you have seen or learned in a positive light from me, even in difficult times or difficulties I have always been trying to see the bright. But sufficient is enough," wrote Jack.
"Every hour of every day for over 18 months I have been struggling tirelessly and am physically drained.
"It's been a weight off my back to have a 4-2-year deduction, so I finally could concentrate on my swimming and return to what I enjoy. The bombshell then arrives.
"Any of you may be aware that SIA and WADA have not, for more than 40 years now, appealed the judgment of the arbitrator back in November last year.
"I hurt. "I hurt. I'm fighting. I'm fighting. Moreover, I am afraid that I will always fail against those authorities, as much as I fight and I throw money into this battle.
"Sever this drug charge started, I have absorbed the burden of losing over 130k. And want more now? Now? How much more can I continue to take from these people?
"My country loves to swim and compete but I honestly don't know if everything's more worth it.
"About this this is the most saddest part. I realize I'm innocent of ever knowingly taking a banned drug, and that may be why I don't want to be Shayna Jack the swimmer any more.
"Would you remain if you were at a job that didn't want to treat you as you deserve and asked who you were?
"I know my importance and in this world nobody deserves to be treated like me. I've earned better than this and I won't sit there pretending that I'm all right, because I'm not right and I hope you're all okay."
When was the prohibition halved
CAS released in full its judgment on 24 November in the appeal of Jack and confirmed that three potential sources of positive testing were proposed by the swimmer.
Jack told CAS one option was to take supplements contaminated in the development process.
The supplements were furthermore contaminated by preparing or combining in a blender that their spouses or brothers who may have contaminated or contained Ligandrol have used. They were also contaminated by the use of the mixer.
Jack could be contacted or absorbed by using a swimming pool and/or a gym in Townsville and Cairns during training in the World Championships in May and June of last year as a third alternative.
CAS, according to the decision, Jack "confirmed candidly that she did not know how in her system the prohibited substance was made."
