It was September 7 last year when China revealed that Olympic teamster of 2008, 2012 (bronze, 400m medley) and 2016, Li Xuanxu had been handed a six months suspension for a positive doping test. She was one of three Chinese national swimming team members served suspensions of between six months and a year despite having tested positive for the same substance that disqualified teenager Chen Xinyi from the Olympic Games in Rio last year and the sport as a whole for two years. As Li Xuanxu- and the asterisk reported in China but not by FINA – returns, fair to ask: why are there Chinese doping cases in swimming health with in China but not on the published FINA case file?
