WADA will not appeal Chinese swimmer Sun Yang’s ban


The World Anti-Doping agency will not appeal a three-month ban imposed against China’s controversial double Olympic swimming champion Sun Yang but will warn China over the case.

WADA had considered action after Sun failed a doping test in May and was banned for three months by the Chinese federation but it was only announced in November after Sun had won more titles at the Asian Games.

“WADA has reviewed the full case file for the Chinese swimmer Sun Yang and has decided not to appeal the decision by the Chinese Swimming Federation to impose a three-month sanction,” WADA spokesman Ben Nichols told AFP in a statement.

“WADA has written to CHINADA however, raising its concern over the delayed public reporting of the case,” the spokesman added.
