Sun Yang

The pride of the Chinese swimming, 3-time Olympic champion and 11-time world champion sun Yang suspended from athletic activities for 8 years after anti-doping rule violation, the official website of the court of arbitration for Sport (CAS).

The athlete failed the doping test in September 2018, after which the case was sent for consideration by the Doping Board of the International swimming Federation (FINA), which justified the Chinese.

In turn, the World anti-doping Agency (WADA) has filed an appeal against the decision of FINA to the CAS.

The court decided unanimously to dismiss sun Jan from participation in sports competitions for eight years.

Recall, sun Yang has won “gold” Olympic games 2012 in London at the distances of 400 and 1500 meters freestyle, as well as in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 at a distance of 200 meters.

Thus, the 28-year-old athlete will not take part in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and may prematurely end his professional career.

We would add that sun was born in a family of athletes, his parents were volleyball players. From them he inherited sporting genes and love of the sport.

Jan is very attentive to your diet. On the eve of the Olympic games-2012 Chinese swimmer ate a whole fish at every meal. His coach Zhu Zhigang claimed that eating fish has a positive effect on the results of the sun in swimming.

It turns out, not only from the eating of fish was high, the performance of Chinese swimming.

We will remind, in last world championship in water sports, which was held in South Korea’s Gwangju, Ian got into another scandal. Briton Duncan Scott, who shared the bronze medal with the Russian Martin Malyutin, refused to shake hands with the Sun and make a picture of him on the podium.
