It was clearly systematic doping to improve performance. All their medals should be returned and both the swimmers and their coaches should be banned from the sport for 10 yrs - or life.

Playing fair is a key aspect of the Olympics. The politics of authoritarian states wants the world to be believe that sports are unrelated to politics, but if that were true, then they wouldn't directly fun their athletes across nearly every Olympic sport.

Trimetazidine doesn't magically get added to food like pepper or salt. The Chinese are lying, again and as long as there aren't any repercussions, they will continue.

Wow - what a shock. No sanction from WADA when clearly there was systemic, government sanctioned doping being administered. I'm sure it was just an amazing "co-incidence" that a heart medication somehow made it into the food of at least 11 athletes.

This month The New York Times reported that Qin, Wang and another swimmer involved in the TMZ case had also tested positive for a different banned substance in separate cases several years earlier.

So, at least 3 of them are also serial dopers. Just another "co-incidence" I guess.

Amazing how many of these synthetic medications can make it into food!

Russian athletes are banned for nearly a decade and Chinese can cheat as they want.

systematic doping also occurs with Nigeria, the USA, Uk in the recent past and other countries

Not according to the WADA report, try reading it instead of the usual anti China hysteria.

Don't forget the Kenyans and especially the Jamaicans.

Gee, I wonder how much Chinese team “food” will just so happen to be “contaminated” again this Olympics?

Lets have a decade of "just go crazy " with the drugs in sport and see what we get.

Gotta be better than the smoke and mirrors from many countries, with Pollyana denials and finger wagging from many in the west.

I wanna see freakish stuff !!!

How about no. The allegedly clean child athletes of Russia/China are freaky enough.

You basically do already. Well, maybe not go crazy but go carefully and controlled, intelligent doping in the norm in most sports. Don't kid yourself otherwise.
