Chinese teenager Chen Xinyi, the nation’s top butterfly swimmer, has been handed a two-year suspension after testing positive for Hydrochlorothiazide during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Hydrochlorothiazide is used to treat high blood pressure and swelling caused by heart failure and liver damage. The judgement handed to the swimmer is not accompanied by a penalty for coach, doctor or any other official serving as the guardian of an athlete who has been in the care of the national team in China since she became a teenager.
