Badminton World Federation (BWF) on 11 November 2014 provisionally suspended Malaysian badminton player and World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei due to an apparent anti-doping regulation violation.
The world-governing body has imposed this suspension due to an Adverse Analytical Finding of a sample taken at the BWF World Championships in August 2014.
The BWF has referred the matter to the BWF Doping Hearing Panel and, in due course, the Chair of the Panel will set the time, date and location of a hearing. The Panel will determine whether or not the athlete has committed an anti-doping regulation violation.
The Provisional Suspension means the athlete is barred temporarily from participation in any competition prior to the BWF Doping Hearing Panel’s decision.
He won silver at 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics.
He is a four time Commonwealth Games gold Medalist, Two each in singles and men’s team events.
He has won three silver medals and a bronze at the World Championships.
He was part of the Silver medal winning Malaysian team at the 2014 Thomas Cup.
He has won 55 career tittles and was named the BWF player of the year four times.
