The 20-year-old spent almost five hours with mother Pauline and lawyer Paul Horvarth, being briefed on Friday by Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) officials.
Jack is facing a four-year ban after testing positive to Ligandrol, a muscle growth agent, during an Australian swim camp last month ahead of the world championships in South Korea. The substance is also used to treat degenerative muscle conditions like osteoporosis, but it’s also known to increase muscle mass and aid quick recovery.

The freestyle specialist emerged from the briefing, vowing to fight the case.
“I’m really happy with how everything’s going and I’m not going to stop until I’ve proved my innocence,” she said, speaking to the media for the first time since her positive test result became public.
“I’ll fight to get myself back in the pool because that’s my dream and I’m never going to let that go.”
Jack and Horvarth were both asked what levels of Ligandrol had been found in her A and B samples, but did not provide an answer.
