  On the 18th local time, the International Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) issued an announcement on its official website saying that due to the violation of relevant anti-doping regulations by British track and field athlete Jijindu-Uja, the British team was qualified for the Tokyo Olympics men's 4×100m relay event. If cancelled, medals etc. will also be withdrawn.

  This means that the Chinese team is expected to make up for a precious bronze medal.

  In the men's 4x100m relay final at the Tokyo Olympics on August 6, 2021, the Italian team won the championship, and the British team crossed the finish line second.

The Chinese team, consisting of Tang Xingqiang, Xie Zhenye, Su Bingtian, and Wu Zhiqiang, finished the race in 37.79 seconds, trailing only 0.09 seconds behind the Canadian team, ranking fourth and missing the podium.

  However, a few days after the game, the international testing agency announced that Uja, a member of the British relay team, had tested positive for a urine sample from a bottle of A, and the relevant samples were collected after the relay final.

  Uja then applied for a bottle B test, but results released in mid-September last year showed that his urine sample from bottle B was still positive.

The two positive results mean Uja's doping test samples contained prohibited ingredients.

  The international testing agency immediately referred the incident to the Anti-Doping Department of the International Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The agency will rule on whether Uja constituted a doping violation and whether Britain's relay silver medal will be withdrawn.

  After about five months of waiting, the International Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) finally released the relevant results.

As expected, Uja was found guilty of doping violations, and the British team's results were also cancelled.

  The Olympic medal position has been vacant due to similar situations, and subsequent teams (individuals) have filled it up. There are many cases in the past to follow.

For example, in the 2012 London Olympics women's shot put event, Gong Lijiao ranked 4th, but Belarusian Ostapchuk, who won the championship, was subsequently deprived of the gold medal due to doping problems, and Gong Lijiao won the bronze medal instead.

  This means that the Chinese team, which won the fourth place in the men's 4×100-meter relay final at the Tokyo Olympics, is getting closer and closer to the medal.

The wishes of netizens are not far from being realized.

  This is about the Chinese team, about Su Bingtian's wishes.

In the men's 100m final at the Tokyo Olympics, Chinese player Su Bingtian finished sixth with a time of 9.98 seconds. As the first Chinese to reach the men's 100m final at the Olympic Games, he once again made history.

  In the men's 100m semi-final at the Tokyo Olympics, Su Bingtian, who was classified into the "group of death", ran an exhilarating 9.83 seconds.

While breaking the Asian record, he overwhelmed many famous players as the first in the group and advanced to the final with his head held high.

This "post-80s" veteran has written a new history of sprinting in China and even in Asia.

  In the subsequent final, Su Bingtian once again opened the 10-second mark in a short time.

Although he missed the podium in the end, he showed the best side to the world, and he became a god in World War I.

In the men's 100m semi-final at the Tokyo Olympics, Chinese flying man Su Bingtian set an Asian record of 9.83 seconds, setting a new personal best and successfully advanced to the final.

  How shocking is Su Bingtian's "9 seconds 83"?

It can be seen from the host of the Olympic Games.

  After the 100-meter final, a Japanese TV station showed a Chinese newspaper with a large photo of Su Bingtian in the program, and reported him in an all-round way.

It can be seen that the achievement of "9 seconds 83" has an influence on the world.

  Indeed, using "making history" to describe that night would seem too flimsy to describe the grandeur behind Su Bingtian's roar.

  Su Bingtian once admitted that he was not regretful for not winning an Olympic medal in the men's 100m event, because he had already played to his full level in the competition.

  However, in an interview after the game, Su Bingtian's joke made many netizens feel distressed, "I especially want to ask her (Gong Lijiao) to take a gold medal and lend me a photo, because I have never seen one, and I have never seen an Olympic medal. pass."

  "I really want to give Su Bing a medal!" This has become the common wish of many netizens until today.

  The Olympic medal is not only everyone's wish, but also Su Bingtian's dream.

Now, it was getting closer and closer to him.

  Fairness has always been the pursuit of the Olympic Games, and I believe that time will give a fair answer in the end.

  Maybe this still needs a process, but we are willing to wait with "Su Shen", with Tang Xingqiang, Xie Zhenye, Wu Zhiqiang, and with the Chinese team!
