Recent revelations from The New York Times have ignited a firestorm of criticism aimed at the United States Anti-Doping Agency, just three months ahead of the Paris Olympic Games. The World Anti-Doping Agency’s decision not to pursue sanctions against 23 Chinese swimmers, who tested positive for trimetazidine (TMZ) in 2021, has raised serious questions about doping regulation.

Expert Jean-Pierre de Mondenard asserts the implausibility of contamination, which was the reason given by Chinese authorities. He also says flaws exist in the World Anti-Doping Agency in addressing doping issues.

The head of the United States Anti-Doping Agency said he would consider legal action against the World Anti-Doping Agency over the Chinese swimmers.
