The Ghana Swimming Association has suspended swimmer Ophelia Swayne indefinitely.

Ophelia Swayne on Tuesday alleged that her colleague Kaya Forson’s father had paid bribe to get his daughter to replace her at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Association president Theophilus Edzi confirmed to  Starr FM Ophelia Swayne had been suspended saying:

“Ophelia could not swim in the World Championship knowing the advantage that happens there. Her club had expunged her for truancy during her training regime and because of that she lost a place in the national team.
