Swimming: WADA to launch independent review into China’s handling of doping case

# Swimming: The World Anti-Doping Agency says it will launch an independent review in the case of 23 Chinese swimmers who were cleared of doping. The swimmers had tested positive for the banned heart drug trimetazidine in 2021 but were exonerated by the Chinese Anti-Doping Agency. The global anti-doping body says it accepted the argument of Chinese authorities that the case was caused by food contamination. WADA says it has been unfairly accused of bias in favour of China by not appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
