A Swimmer Has FAILED Their Drug Test At The Games

The Rio Olympics appears to have its first doping scandal.

Reports are circulating that Chinese Swimmer Chen Xinyi has failed her doping test.

If the news is true, it is likely to bring the volatile mood in the pool to new high levels, as athletes continue to talk about doping.

Chen finished fourth in the women’s 100m butterfly final and was due to swim in the thats of the 50m freestyle event on Friday.

It is rumoured she failed the test before arriving in Rio but was not notified of the failure.

The 18-year-old is set to be called before the Court of Arbitration for Sport in the next few hours.
