Olafur Gottskalksson

What a strange Icelandic name. There is something stranger about his story though. He was a professional footballer with a decent career. He was even capped for Iceland. He was about 35 and playing second fiddle for Torquay United when the drug testers came.

His was the random player to be tested but he refused. He then asked to see the list of banned substances. He then ran away, he disappeared and left Torquay and his life and girlfriend behind.

Check him out on Wikipedia.
