Olympian swimmer Scott Miller will fight a series of drug and stealing charges after pleading not guilty, a court heard.
Miller appeared briefly at Waverley Local Court on Wednesday accused of possessing three small amounts of the drug ice.
He is also accused of possessing more than $16,000, which is suspected of being stolen.
Police arrested the former swimming star after he was allegedly found with three, clear resealable bags of ice at a Mascot house on June 18. Advertisement
The Edgecliff resident allegedly had $1900 on him, while $14,700 was allegedly found inside a car.
Police charged him with two counts of goods in custody suspected of being stolen, and supply and drug possession.
He was excused from appearing at his next hearing at the Downing Centre Local Court on August 21.
Dressed in a black shirt and khaki pants, Miller did not comment as he walked in and out of the court house.
The 38-year-old former butterfly swimmer joined the Australian Institute of Sport in 1991 before going on to win bronze and silver medals at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and gold at the 1995 World Championships in Rio.
Miller will report to Waverley police station three times a week as part of his bail conditions.
