WADA files appeal against China's Sun Yang doping decision
The World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) said Wednesday it had filed an appeal against a decision to clear Chinese swimming star Sun Yang of missing an out of competition doping test.
WADA, meeting in Lausanne, told AFP that it had filed the appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport following a decision by swimming's world governing body FINA not to pursue a case against the multiple world champion.
Sun, who has won Olympic gold in the 200m, 400m and 1,500m freestyle, missed an out-of-competition test on September 4 at his home in China's Zhejiang province.
