7th May 2010

BEIJING - China’s star judoka Tong Wen, who claimed the Beijing Olympics women’s 78kg title and three world championships gold medals in a row, has been banned for two years for doping.

The decision was made by the International Judo Federation at its council meeting in Tunis on Friday evening. Tong’s world championships trophy has been stripped of but her Olympic gold medal remains untouched.

23rd February 2011

The Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned the suspension imposed by the International Judo Federation, citing a “procedural failure” in the laboratory tests, and reinstated her as world champion.
