The shocking news came to the Chinese swimming village after the Sports Arbitration Court (CAS) issued an 8-year ban on swimmers for Sun Yang swimmers for not cooperating in the doping test in September 2018.
Sun Yang was banned from playing for up to 8 years due to doping. Olympic freestyle swimming champion, was unable to escape the doping penalty because Sun Yang himself rejected the doping test two years ago at a home test.
With the action of breaking the sample to escape the case, Sun Yang will face punishment but the FINA International Swimming Federation tries to protect Sun Yang.
Australian swimmer Mack Horton refused to step onto the podium with Sun at last year’s world title in Korea.
The World Anti-Doping Agency recently appealed that decision to CAS, the case was heard in November 2019. Sun Yang has been declared by the FINA International Swimming Federation against doping, agreeing that the trial did not provide a complete identity to accuse Sun Yang.
However, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) sued the Court of Sports Arbitration (CAS) to oppose the FINA verdict.
Sun Yang himself has been caught in accusations from Australian swimmer Mack Horton (who refused to step on the podium with Sun at last year’s world title in South Korea).
With these allegations the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) brought the matter to the CAS, demanding a two to the eight-year ban on Sun Yang for missing a test outside the competition.
Thus, with an 8-year sentence for athletes who have won 3 Olympic gold medals, it is considered that the playing career of Sun has ended.
This is a pity for China because they have high expectations for this fish before the Tokyo Olympics this year.
