Swimming: Doping case swimmer Sun Yang again at the end of May for sports tribunal
7.42 pm: The international court of sports arbitration CAS will again assess the doping case of Chinese swimmer Sun Yang at the end of May. The Sports Tribunal has appointed three new judges for the trial, which is scheduled for the week of May 24-28.
The CAS previously imposed an 8-year doping suspension on Sun. The reigning world and Olympic champion in the 200-meter freestyle refused to cooperate in an unexpected doping test in September 2018. Members of his guidance staff are said to have even destroyed blood samples with a hammer.
The swimmer successfully appealed his sentence to the Swiss court. He objected to the chairman of the CAS jury panel who had convicted him. Italian Franco Frattini is said to have made anti-Chinese comments in public.
The Swiss court overturned the CAS judgment in December last year, with which Sun suddenly lost his suspension and in principle can participate again in the Olympic Games in Tokyo. The tribunal in Lausanne is now reopening the case against Sun with a completely new arbitration panel and will make a new decision after the hearings in May.
