Banned Chinese language swimmer Solar Yang has lodged an attraction on the Swiss federal courtroom in a bid to overturn his eight-year suspension for doping, the Swimming World web site reported on Tuesday. Solar was banned by the Switzerland-based Courtroom of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in March after the World Anti-Doping Company (WADA) appealed towards a choice to clear him of wrongdoing throughout a 2018 doping check. Swimming World stated the three-times Olympic champion’s attraction had been registered by the Swiss federal courtroom on April 29.
Reuters was unable to substantiate with the courtroom. Solar, who was given a three-month ban for doping in 2014, stated in March that he had retained a lawyer to attraction to the Swiss federal courtroom.
The 28-year-old is the reigning world and Olympic champion in 200 metres freestyle and gained two gold medals on the 2012 London Video games and one other at Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
