Chinese national champion fails dope test
Beijing: China`s athletics national champion Sun Lu has tested positive for a diuretic, the country`s anti-doping body said Wednesday.

Sun was found using hydrochlorothiazide, a medicine that treats fluid retention and high blood pressure and can be used to cover the traces of other performance-enhancing drugs, the China Anti-Doping Agency told Xinhua.

Sun, who had requested an analysis of her B sample, which still turned out positive, gave up the right for a hearing.

Sun, from Henan province, won the women`s 1,500m title in last year`s athletics national championships and the positive test is expected to bring a ban to keep her from this year`s national games, an event held every four years.
