The Byron Bay-born kayaker and younger brother Dru faced Sydney's District Court last week for manufacturing more than 18,000 2CB pills and trying to produce methamphetamine.  

Each pleaded guilty to the crimes in February after being arrested for their involvement in a syndicate with drug laboratories in residential areas of Tweed Heads and the Gold Coast.  

The 39-year-old Olympic silver medallist told the court he had been king hit and hospitalised in jail because of his high profile, Fairfax reported.  

The Baggaleys will face court again on December 14 for sentencing.
