BWF provisionally suspended Lee Chong Wei due to anti-doping regulation violation

Nov 12, 2014 18:05 IST

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.
