It is now believed that the whole fuss may be a malicious attempt to throw the sailor off balance in the eve of the competition
In the case of Irish Olympic sailor Peter O'Leary, who is now being under investigation of the Irish Olympic Council due to allegations that in 2008 he benefited from betting on an opponent against whom he would be racing, new speculations arose, and not against the sportsman.
Namely, having in mind the weak performance of the Irish sailing team in this year's London Olympics, people started talking that O'Leary may actually be a victim of a plot to throw off his top game by the allegations, which were submitted to the Irish Olympic Council via email on 21 July.
Regarding the claim that just before the Beijing Olympics in 2008 O'Leary placed two bets on an opponent winning in an event in which he was entered, his lawyers rejected the allegation, stating that it has been made in 'vengeance and spite' and is designed to throw him off balance at the time of 'maximum negative impact'.
Solidarity and understanding can be heard from the sportsman's colleagues regarding this issue, and one of them, Andrew Simpson of UK, currently leading with team mate Iain Simpson, said: "I think they are a bit frustrated because the Irish press are hounding them quite hard and I feel very sorry for those guys. It is not a good situation to be in and it must be pretty frustrating."
