On Friday, the Cas trial begins against Chinese Sun Yang, 27, who is accused of sabotaging a doping test. Today, the International Anti-Doping Agency announced to Wada that they are calling for up to eight years of suspension for the swimming star.



Sun Yang, double world champion in South Korean Gwangju in August, is accused of sabotaging a doping test in September last year. The Chinese swimming star was released in January by the International Swimming Association Fina, which was appealed to Cas by the International Anti-Doping Agency Wada.

On Friday, he will be heard by the Sports Arbitration Court, Cas, in Montreux, Switzerland. A hearing that is open to the public, which is only the second time in history.

CAS announced today that Wada wants to see 27-year-old Sun Yang suspended for up to eight years for the sabotage, reports the AP. Sun earned a three-month suspension in 2014, after being tested positive.

If Wada wins, the triple Olympic champion misses the Tokyo 2020 championship.

Friday's trial is expected to last all day, but a verdict in the case is not expected to come until the beginning of next year.

Almost the entire swimming world has criticized him, one of them being Sarah Sjöström.
