Beijing Marathon and Sun Yingjie

Posted in 2008 Olympics, Track and Field/Athletics at 4:09 pm by Nicole

The Beijing International Marathon was held on Sunday morning – the IAAF report can be found here. Normally Sun Yingjie, formerly a star distance runner for China who failed a doping test at the National Games in 2005, would have been among the entrants for this prestigious race. Her ban ended last Friday and Chinese national media is reporting that she will be attempting a comeback, possibly at the Xiamen Marathon in southeastern China in January.
