Chinese 2008 Beijing Olympic judo champion stripped of world title for dope test failure

Posted by Author on May 10, 2010

A Chinese Olympic judo champion has been punished after failing a doping test – but her coach says too many pork chops are to blame.

Tong Wen was the women’s 78-kilogram gold medallist at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

She has been banned for two years and stripped of her 2009 world title after testing postive for Clenbuterol.

But her coach, Wu Weifeng, believes China’s well-documented food safety problems are responsible for the first positive test by a Chinese Olympic champion.

Wu says Clenbuterol is a cheap chemical illegally used as an additive to feed pigs in China and it causes breathing disorders and rising blood pressure.

Tong Wen was tested at the world championships in the Netherlands last year. (Australia Network News)
