  Sun Yang's crack at Australian 'black power' Sun Yang has taken a crack at the Australian media and Mack Horton during his fateful CAS hearing.Sun is fighting for his career at the CAS, though a decision on his case will not be announced until next year; an Olympic year, with Tokyo 2020 looming large.

The one-time Chinese drug cheat had always cut a polarising figure in world sport, and when Horton staged his controversial protest it ignited a cultural-political powder keg.

The vitriol spilled into the public arena. Horton was targeted by Chinese state media and vilified on social media, while on the side of the gulf Sun was chastised as a "drug cheat" and a "disgrace" to the sport.

  TikTok Owner Reportedly Expanding Its Empire Into Music Subscriptions TikTok owner ByteDance, the Beijing-based behemoth that answers to no man (or at least U.S. senator) is reportedly crafting plans to fulfil its destiny — its foray into the subscription music business. According to the Financial Times, ByteDance has approached Warner Music, Sony, and Universal for licensing deals, a move which should further strike fear into the cold hearts of tech companies who’ve been taking unsuccessful stabs at copycat products as they fall behind TikTok’s rise to the number three spot in the App Store, with a total of 1.5 billion downloads.

Peeling back the hysteria, the issue pivoted on one point of contention, Sun's failure to provide a sample to anti-doping agents in 2018 when he smashed vials of his blood with a hammer upon their arrival to his home.

John Coates says Sun Yang has little to complain about in CAS hearing

  John Coates says Sun Yang has little to complain about in CAS hearing Coates, the Court of Arbitration for Sport president, says Sun was given a fair hearing and frustrations about language and time frames were the swimmer's responsibility.Sun appeared before CAS in Montreux, Switzerland, over the weekend in an effort to clear his name after the World Anti-Doping Agency appealed a FINA decision not to punish him for smashing a vial of his blood during an out-of-competition test at the end of 2018.

The meridian system is a concept in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) about a path through which the life-energy known as "qi" flows. Despite ongoing research into the existence of meridians, no convincing scientific evidence has been put forward for their existence.

However, it has also been claimed that sun gazing leads to super powers! The findings from the most recent studies agree with this rather 'wild' claim . Sun gazers state that this practice has some certain rules.The most important one rule is to engage in sun gazing within an hour after sunrise and an hour

The crux of the issue has hinged on the Court of Arbitrations for Sport's findings of what happened that day, with the verdict to finally end the accusations.

But reaching a finding has proven problematic with Sun's hearing becoming bogged in translation issues and communication breakdown.

Now the latest curveball in the saga has reportedly been uncovered by Chinese state media Xinhua News Agency who claim one of the individuals who visited Sun to collect his blood sample was actually a construction worker rather than an anti-doping official.

The Xinhua News Agency, which is China's official state-run press agency reports the builder attended Sun's residence in Hangzhou because he was friends with one of the doping control officers on site.

Sun maintained in a mammoth 10-hour hearing session over the weekend that the inspectors drawing samples failed to provide proper identification papers, which led to his mother ordering their security guard to smash the vials of blood to prevent it being taken and tested.

  Sun Yang's lawyers want CAS to consider builder's explosive testimony Sun's legal team has the document from a man claiming to be the untrained official present at the chaotic test. But will it help the Chinese star?The career of China’s Olympic champion swimmer Sun Yang may be decided by the legal status given to an extraordinary claim that one of his drug testers was a construction worker with no training or experience in anti-doping.

State newspaper says China does not have Harvey Weinstein-type predators because ‘men are taught to be protective of women’.

Sun claimed the action was within his right because he had doubts over the legitimacy of the testers.

Xinhua quoted an unnamed person had come forward claiming he was the construction worker at the scene and that he was not taken up on his offer to testify.

"I agreed to give my words at a video conference before the public hearing as they requested. I was ready, but no one had ever contacted me about this," he said.

"I am a builder and I am always busy at work, day and night. No one ever trained me about the doping test, and it is unnecessary for me to undertake such training."

A WADA expert disputed Sun's account, saying the inspectors' credentials were in order.

A tribunal appointed by swimming world body FINA gave Sun only a caution in January, but the World Anti-Doping Agency appealed the case to CAS. Its judges are not expected to give a verdict from Friday's 12-hour hearing until next year and if the ruling goes against him, Sun could be banned from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
