CAS released the arbitration results, exposed on the spot, Secretary General: Sun Yang did not cooperate in the inspection
CAS: there is no evidence that Sun Yang will not be deprived of gold medal in doping World Championships
According to Agence France Presse, the International Sports Arbitration Commission unanimously determined that Sun Yang had tampered with his doping test record (smashing bottles), and considering that he had been banned before, the international sports arbitration court said they decided to impose the most severe eight-year ban.
CAS also said: although in his opinion, the other party did not meet the international test standards, Sun Yang destroyed the sample collection containers, and he failed to provide a convincing reason why he did so. Its one thing to provide a blood sample, then to question the qualification of the tester, and at the same time to keep the complete sample to the official, but its another thing to take action that causes the sample container to be destroyed, thus eliminating any chance that there will be no test sample in the future.
In addition, Olivier, director general of the World Anti Doping Agency, welcomed CASs decision as an important result. The World Anti Doping Agency carefully reviewed the initial ruling of fina, and finally came to the conclusion that there are many mistakes, so we decided to appeal. Todays CAS decision confirmed everything, which is an important result.
Although Sun Yang has been suspended for eight years, this is not the final result. Sun Yang can still appeal, and CAS officials also said that there is no evidence that Sun Yang has been suspected of participating in doping activities since September 4, 2018, and his achievements in the Guangzhou World Championships are still valid.
