Mary O'Rourke QC represents Dr Richard Freeman, former British Cycling and Team Sky medic, at Medical Tribunal

Mary O'Rourke QC represents Dr Richard Freeman at Medical Tribunal.

The former British Cycling and Team Sky medic has been accused of ordering testosterone to British Cycling's headquarters in 2011 to boost an athlete's performance, which he denies.

Freeman has admitted 18 of the 22 charges against him, including ordering banned testosterone to the Manchester Velodrome headquarters of Team Sky and British Cycling in 2011 and masterminding a botched attempt at a cover-up. He says he was bullied into ordering the testosterone by former British Cycling and Team Sky performance director Shane Sutton.
