A young Ugandan weightlifter who disappeared in Japan after failing to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics was charged Wednesday with conspiracy to defraud.
Julius Ssekitoleko vanished from an Olympic training camp after learning he did not meet the standards to compete in the Games.
The 20-year-old was found several days later and flown home to Uganda where government officials detained him for several days.
A spokesman for Uganda’s criminal investigations department said Ssekitoleko may have conspired with a government official to be included on the team for Japan.
