IOC: Chinese swimmer was tested

-A A +A
By Associated Press

LONDON — The IOC is weary of the doping innuendos being leveled against 16-year-old Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen.
She broke the world record in winning gold in the 400-meter medley, and her performance has been critiqued since, most recently by executive director of the World Swimming Coaches Association John Leonard.
Asked Tuesday about the allegations, IOC spokesman Mark Adams would not specifically address Leonard’s comments. But he seemed tired of the talk about Ye.
“I think we need to get real here,” he said during the daily briefing. “I mean, these are world-class athletes competing at the very highest level with records being broken all over the place.”
Adams also said Ye was tested after winning the gold.
“We can’t stop speculation,” he said. “It is inevitably a sad result that there are people who dope and who cheat. But I think it’s also very sad if we can’t applaud a great performance.”
