Jessica Hardy says she is innocent

Jessica Harday has tested positive for the drug clenbuterol. She claims that she doesn’t even know what it is.

She still hopes to compete in Beijing Olympics in August.

“I’m innocent,” said Hardy, who spoke by telephone from California accompanied by her attorney, Howard Jacobs. “That’s all I can say to everybody. Whether or not people chose to believe me, I’m innocent.”

Hardy won the 100-meter breaststroke and came second to Dara Torres in the 50 meter freestyle.

“It’s pretty much the hardest thing in my life that I’ve ever had to go through,” she said. “I’ve cried every single day since I found out. I even vomited from anxiety. This is absolutely the worst time of my life.”
