Doping

Systematic doping of Chinese athletes in Olympic Games (and other international sport events) revealed by Xue Yinxian in 2012 and 2017. He claimed more than 10,000 athletes in China were doped in the systematic Chinese government doping program and that they received performance enhancing drugs in the 1980s and 1990s. He stated that all international medals (Both in the Olympics and other international competitions) that were won by Chinese athletes in the 1980s and 1990s (1980 to 2000) should be taken back. This is contrary to previous statements made by the Chinese government that denied involvement in systematic doping, claiming that athletes doped individually. The International Olympic Committee and World Anti-Doping Agency investigated these allegations. [12] [13] [14] [15] [16]
