South Korean Olympic swimming star and national icon Park Tae-Hwan fought to clear his name on Tuesday as he reeled from the shock news that he failed a doping test. The four-time Olympic medallist blamed an injection given by a hospital for the result, the second high-profile Asian swimming case in recent months after China's Sun Yang. In a statement, Park's management agency Team GMP said the 25-year-old -- dubbed "Marine Boy" and with an Asian Games pool bearing his name -- was stunned by the news. The agency said he was injected at a South Korean hospital while receiving chiropractic treatment before last year's Asiad in Incheon.
