Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei receives 8-month backdated doping ban

Malaysian shuttler Lee Chong Wei received an eight-month backdated sanction for an anti- doping regulation violation, which could be lifted on April 30, according to a news released from the official website of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) on Monday.

It said that the Doping Hearing Panel deemed it "correct and fair" to backdate the period of ineligibility to the date of sample collection, which means the sanction will be lifted on April 30, 2015, making Lee Chong Wei eligible to resume competition on May 1, 2015.

Lee, 32, tested positive for the banned anti-inflammatory drug dexamethasone at last year's World Championships in Copenhagen, where he lost to China's Chen Long in the final. The doping hearing of Lee was held in Amsterdam before a three-member BWF panel.
