Swimmer Banned

Chinese prodigy Zhong Weiyue, who stunned the swimming world with two records in January has tested positive for doping and been suspended for two years, the International Swimming Federation, or FINA, has said.


A brief statement issued Saturday after a FINA meeting said Zhong's 50-meter and 100-meter short course world records would not stand.


"At the Swimming World Cup Event held in Beijing in January 1994, the swimmer Zhong Weiyue was found positive at the doping control test," the statement said.
