Swim of the Week: Matsumoto's 1:45.1 JPN Record in 200 Free
Matsumoto's 1:45.1
Jan. 22, 2021 — The men’s 200 free might be one of the most wide-open races in the Olympic year. China’s Sun Yang won the 2016 Olympic gold medal and both the 2017 and 2019 World Championships. But with Sun’s status in doubt amid an ongoing doping case, the battle for Tokyo Olympic gold could go in any direction. Japan’s Katsuhiro Matsumoto is making a name for himself in that gold medal hunt. The 23-year-old shaved a tenth off his own national record this week, going 1:45.13 to win the Kosuke Kitajima Cup in Tokyo. That’s the best time in the world this season, supplanting former leader Alexander G ...

Swiss Court Confirms Racist Tweets the Cause of Sun Yang Ban Overturning
Jan. 17, 2021 — While it has been previously reported that Sun Yang’s eight-year ban was overturned by a Swiss Tribunal, the Swiss Federal Court has now issued a press release confirming that racist comments made towards China by the chairman of the three-member panel responsible for the original ban are the source of the overturning. A multiple-time Olympic champion, Sun Yang was originally given an eight-year ban by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) last February. The ruling was made following an out-of-competition doping control test at which Sun destroyed samples, arguing that those who w ...

New Ryan Lochte Doc Paints Sympathetic Picture, But Raises Deeper Questions
July 16, 2020 — I’ve found myself rooting for Ryan Lochte since his return to the national stage in summer 2019. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about why that’s the case — he has repeatedly brought negative attention to the sport and to himself for making undeniably poor choices, and yet, I’m always drawn back by his “party boy-turned-family man” narrative. His latest foray to the small screen, “ In Deep with Ryan Lochte ” – while entertaining – did little to quell that confusion. The 69-minute film is a well-executed attempt by NBC to paint Lochte as a sympathetic figure. I teared up at times, l ...

One Year Later, Duncan Scott Reflects On His Sun Yang Handshake Snub In Gwangju
July 16, 2020 — The 2019 FINA World Aquatic Championships in Gwangju culminated in world records by Hungary’s Kristof Milak, Russia’s Anton Chupkov and the United States’ Regan Smith, as well as the Australian women’s 4x200m freestyle relay, United States’ women’s 4x100m medley relay, and the United States’ mixed 4x100m freestyle relay. However, among the stellar performances from the best athletes around the world, a black cloud hung in the air concerning competitor Sun Yang of China. At the time of this competition last July, the winner of the 200m and 400m freestyle events in Gwangju was facing a ...

State of Swiss Federal Tribunal in Limbo as Sun Yang's Appeal Deadline Passes
April 2, 2020 — Last Saturday marked a month since the Switzerland-based Court of Arbitration for Sport handed Sun Yang an eight-year ban , meaning his window to file an appeal to a higher court theoretically has passed – though his lawyers vowed to appeal, we have yet to receive confirmation they have formally done so. The higher court, the Swiss Federal Tribunal, is unsurprisingly being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a press release last week, the court has suspended some operations while keeping others on track. The court issued the following statement (translated from German): I ...
