Chinese doctor drags Michael Phelps into doping speculation


Wow, harsh words on the The Sydney Morning Herald via the Los Angeles Times, Chinese former Olympic doctor Chen Zhanghao defending newly minted gold medalist Ye Shiwen:

“Abnormal?” Chen was quoted as saying to the newspaper, “America’s Phelps broke seven world records! Is he normal?

“I suspect Phelps, but without evidence, I have to recognize that we should be grounded in facts. The Americans have made many extraordinary performances, but without evidence we have kept silent.”
