Olympics-Australian Olympic medalist kayaker arrested after drug bust

Nov 3 (Reuters) - Australian dual Olympic silver medal-winning kayaker Nathan Baggaley has been arrested following a drug bust, local media reported on Sunday.

Australian Federal Police, investigating amphetamine trafficking, arrested the 37-year-old Baggaley and another person on Friday in northern New South Wales.

Baggaley, who won two silver medals in the 2004 Athens Olympics, faces seven charges, including manufacturing and producing a prohibited drug, the Australian Associated Press (AAP) news agency reported.

He has been remanded in custody and is expected to appear in a Lismore court on Monday. (Reporting by Amlan Chakraborty in New Delhi, editing by Greg Stutchbury)
