Chinese swimmer Sun Yang said he will “definitely” appeal to the Swiss Federal Tribunal against the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) decision to ban him for eight years.
“This is unfair. I firmly believe in my innocence,” Sun told Xinhua. “I will definitely appeal to let more people know the truth.”
The CAS upheld an appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), ruling that Sun had refused to cooperate with drug sample collectors during a controversial visit to his home in September 2018.
