Thanks to Abi Liu for contributing to this report.
In light of his recent car accident that resulted in him being detained by police, Chinese swimming superstar, and World Record holder, Sun Yang has been handed the following punishments by his provincial sporting association in Zhejiang:
1: Sun is banned from attending any domestic or international meets. (No word until when)
2: He must halt any promotion or sponsorship events.
3: His salary has been suspended.
4: Temporarily removed from the national team roster.
Though there are no really major domestic or international competitions coming up in the next few weeks, this could affect Sun’s status, for example, at the Beijing World Cup next week where the Chinese will hope to make a good home impression.
