Sun Yingjie wins lawsuit on doping case
Updated: 2005-12-18 13:43

Chinese women's distance runner Sun Yingjie has proved her innocence after winning the lawsuit on taking banned drugs at the National Games.

Yu Haijiang, who used to train with Sun together, confessed that he added banned steroid to Sun's drink on December 16, one day before the women's 10,000-meter race at the National Games.

Sun tested positive for high concentrations of the male hormone androsterone following her second-place finish in the race.

She was stripped of her silver medal and faced up to a two-year ban from the sport.

The 26-year-old world championship bronze medalist was once one of China's top hopefuls to win a medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the positive test was seen as a serious blow to China's plans of making a mark on home turf in track events.
