BEIJING () -- A Chinese woman swimmer tested positive for drug use and has been banned from competition for two years and stripped of her three Goodwill Games gold medals, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Wednesday.


Ren Xin was one of three Chinese swimmers tested at the Goodwill Games in Russia. The results showed a higher-than-normal ratio of testosterone and epitestosterone in her urine, the report said.
