Suspended 4 Horses in Olympics

A drug test results positive of capsaicin for four horses in the Olympic equestrian team. Including one from Norway’s bronze-medal team, horse name Camiro, ridden by Tony Andre Hansen and the other three horses Ireland’s Lantinus, ridden by Dennis Lynch; Brazil’s Chupa Chup, ridden by Bernardo Alves; and Germany’s Coster, ridden by Christian Ahlmann have been provisionally suspended after testing positive for a banned pain reliever. Hansen, Lynch and Alves was not able to to ride in Thursday night’s individual competition.

Capsaicin is the ingredient found in different types of hot peppers that makes the peppers spicy hot. When a capsaicin cream or ointment is used on the skin (topical use), capsaicin helps relieve pain by stimulating and then decreasing the intensity of pain signals in the body.
