Ever try skiing while high on cocaine? Well Georges Salameh was about to:

Lebanese ski racer Georges Salameh is facing a ban from the sport after testing positive for cocaine at the world championships last month.

Poor guy. The pressures of competing and winning must have really had a toll on him. Or…

Salameh, the national champion of Lebanon in slalom and giant slalom, competed in the qualification races in both disciplines at Val d’Isere but did not reach the main events to line up against the elite racers.

He finished well down the field in the first leg of the GS and did not start the second run. He did not finish the first leg of the slalom qualifier.

…he justs sucks and out utter depression decided to snort some snow.
