“WADA takes allegations very seriously,” said James Fitzgerald, a spokesman for the Anti-Doping Agency. “We are investigating the matter and will contact all relevant authorities, including the International Swimming Federation (FINA).”
The Times maintains sensitive information. According to the British daily, the three-time Olympic champion was training in a center fully funded by the Chinese state, in violation of the terms of his suspension.
It is based on photos that show Yang training at the Anzi Sports Complex in Zhejiang Province, near his hometown. His current suspension expires in June 2024, before the start of the Olympic Games in Paris. Any other penalties that may jeopardize his participation.
Sun Yang is not the first. The Chinese is a three-time Olympic champion (2x in 2012 and 1x in 2016) and has 3 more Olympic medals in his wardrobe. In addition to this, he also became the 11-time world champion in The Big Bath.
But Sun Yang of course not without a doubt. In 2014, he tested positive for the first time, but after a short hiatus he was able to resume his career. But in 2018, he got out of his way with an out-of-competition check. He threatened the doping fighters and destroyed his steel.
After a protracted legal battle, TAS imposed an 8-year suspension on Sun Yang, but in June this suspension was reduced to 4 years and 3 months after a retrial. His comment ends before the Paris Olympics.
