REGISTRATION FOR THE PUBLIC HEARING
On Friday 15th November 2019 will be held the public hearing of Sun Yang at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, Switzerland. As it is known for everyone, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) filed its appeal against the Chinese swimmer Sun Yang and the Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA).
According to the appeal Sun Yang was participated in the out of competition test where he and his security guard smashed the sealed vial containing the swimmer blood sample with a hammer. The FINA has exempted Sun Yang in its resolution, therefore the WADA filed its appeal against the FINA resolution.
