CCTV: Sun Yang back with the national team



China’s most famous swimming star Sun Yang is once again training with the national. The athlete was reprimanded by State General Administration of Sports, after he was caught driving without a license last November.

SunYang’s fortunes appear to be improving after a troublesome past five months, as the Chinese swimming federation lifted a ban prohibiting the double Olympic champion from training and competing.

After serving seven days in jail in November for driving without a license, Sun was slapped with an indefinite ban by the Chinese swimming federation and the Zheijang College of Sports. Both organizations lifted that ban Thursday, allowing Sun to return to the pool.

Sun is a little bigger than before as he is about 10 kilos heavier due to a lack constant national team training.

“Sun Yang put in a lot of effort in today’s training, as he knew what he need to do and trained very hard. He has a positive attitude and is working well with our instructors, I think it will help Sun get back to the shape he wants to be.” said Li Chunlei, Sun’s Trainer.
