 Wada welcomed Sun Yangs suspension for 8 years: satisfied with the fair ruling


Previously, Sun Yang, a Chinese swimmer, failed to complete his doping test as planned, and we appealed the finas ruling on the incident, which had previously ruled that the doping test was invalid, Wada wrote. Now we welcome the decision of the International Court of Sport Arbitration (CAS).

Wada also stressed that the appeal was based on Sun Yangs voluntary refusal to submit collected samples in accordance with the World Anti Doping regulations and relevant international standards for doping inspection. At present, we have taken note of the decision made by CAS and are satisfied that the case has been fairly decided. Wada said.

Wada appealed the initial decision of fina because after our careful investigation, it finally thought that some opinions seemed to be incorrect, said Negley, director general of Wada. Now, CASs ruling also proves our previous concerns, which is a significant result. Negley also stressed that in the future, Wada will continue to make a comprehensive review of this decision, and will continue to investigate other new Anti Doping decisions, and exercise the independent right of appeal of Wada when necessary. At 5:00 p.m. on February 28, Beijing time, the international sports arbitration court (CAS) officially released the results of the hearing on the case of World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) v. Chinese swimmer Sun Yang and International Swimming Federation (FINA). In the end, Sun Yang was suspended for 8 years, effective from now on, but the previous results are still valid. According to the previous notice issued by CAS, the decision is not final. Sun Yang can appeal to the Supreme Court of the Swiss Federation within 30 days for a very limited range of reasons.
