Malaysia’s Lee gets backdated doping ban

0

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian badminton star Lee Chong Wei Monday was cleared to resume his career and pursuit of Olympic gold when he received an eight-month, backdated ban for doping. The former long-time world number one can return to the court as early as this week after the Badminton World Federation found he “accidentally” ingested a banned substance. Lee, 32, who is eligible to resume competition on May 1, had warned he would retire if he was hit with a possible two-year ban that would have ruled him out of next year’s Olympics.
