Father Drugs Children's Tennis Opponents

"A father who drugged his children's tennis opponents, leading to one player's death, was sentenced to eight years in prison after being convicted Thursday. . . . Fauviau was accused of spiking the water bottles of his children's opponents 27 times in tournaments across France from 2000 to 2003, using the anti-anxiety drug Temesta, which can cause drowsiness. The case illustrated the darker side of some parents' attempts to help their children achieve athletic success."
