There are some dodgy dealings at FINA. How someone can walk away with a 3 month ban after destroying evidence is unbelievable. This is a good outcome that shouldn't have needed to go through CAS in the first place.

what this says to me is that FINA is either corrupt or extremely incompetant I mean the "punishment" fina dealt was a joke and wada sent this to CAS where it received the justified punishment

I thought the 3 month ban was for the initial screening of a prohibited substance for some condition (like Sharapova). The destruction of samples was in 2018

That Aussie swimmer must be feeling justified having taken such a firm stance against Sun all this time ?

You're right, I got the incidents confused. He took a banned heart medication in 2014 and was given a 3 month ban by the Chinese Federation. The hammer to the sample was in 2018 and FINA gave him only a warning but no provisional ban. It allowed him to compete at the World Championships in which he won gold medals.

The way FINA handled it calls into question its integrity. Not sure if it's in its remit but given the way it was mishandled, CAS should have stripped him of those medals as well.

FINA should issue an apology to Mack Horton after threatening to discipline him for not sharing the podium with Sun.

FINA embarrassed themselves in their response.

This was written a few days before the ban.
