It was on the 20th that it was first revealed that 23 Chinese swimmers who participated in the Tokyo Olympics participated in the Olympics despite testing positive for drugs.

WADA said, “There was no basis to refute China’s explanation.

CHINADA followed appropriate procedures.

He explained, “There was no problem with our decision (to send Chinese athletes to the Olympics).”

WADA President Banca defended China on the 23rd, saying, “If the incident had happened again now,

we would have come to the same conclusion.”
