    That's sad, using enhancers and still losing. I hope it isn't true or else I got to find another MD to lobby for..

    LYD along with Kim Ki Jung had failed to report their whereabouts and missed tests for doping.
    The Korean national team had let the BWF know of their whereabouts thus the result is apparently one year and not two years suspension. Doesn't say anything about doping though.

    But missing tests also raises suspicion if you ask me. I love LYD, don't get me wrong, but the natural question would be why they weren't present for the tests.

    *Edit: Apparently, at the press conference it has been confirmed of a one year suspension but that they hadn't taking substances.

    *Edit 2: It wasn't like they were avoiding the tests on purpose. The WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) just happened to be doing the tests in Korea while the players were playing tournaments. Apparently the Korean Badminton Asoc. is the one to be blamed for handling all this badly and it should not be the players faults. They are going to make an appeal.

    *Edit 3: The months in question when the WADA was performing these tests were March, September and November. In other words, LYD and KKJ might have been at All England (March) China Masters and Japan Open in September and China Open and Hong Kong Open in November.

    well, i suppose even if they did take ped's they wouldn't admit it now...

    the question then is why did lyd and kkj and bka allow themselves to miss 3 tests and get themselves into this horrible situation...

    i really really hope it was all a simple administrative error in not filling in his location and that this can be appealed to some degree... 1 year is a significant length of time for not even a positive test...

    I doubt so very much :).

    Players like KKK or maybe even LCW dont need to be reported for their whereaboutsgiven that they are regularly sighted with their flashy cars at flashy night clubs :)

    Badminton-South Korea's Lee banned for missing dope tests

    SEOUL, Jan 28 (Reuters) - South Korea's Olympic badminton gold medallist Lee Yong-dae has been hit with a one-year ban for missing doping tests, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) said on Tuesday.

    The 25-year-old won mixed doubles gold at the 2008 Games in Beijing and a bronze medal in the men's doubles in London four years later. Another Korean player, Kim Ki-jung, was also banned for one year.

    The ban was effective until Jan. 23, 2015, the federation said in a statement, meaning the players would miss the Asian Games in Incheon later this year.

    "Korean badminton players Kim Ki-jung and Lee Yong-dae have each received a one-year sanction for violating the requirements relating to filing whereabouts information and resulting missed tests under the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations," the BWF said.

    "Kim and Lee were required to provide whereabouts information for the BWF to conduct out-of-competition testing. In 2013, both athletes accumulated three whereabouts failures in connection with this administrative process."

    The BWF said it chose not to dish out the maximum two-year ban "due to the Badminton Korea Association's failure ... to make diligent efforts to keep the BWF informed about the players' whereabouts."

    A doping hearing panel recommended that the Korean association should be fined and the BWF said it would determine whether additional sanctions were appropriate.

    Both players have the right to appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the statement said.

    South Korea's badminton association is scheduled to hold a news conference in Seoul later on Tuesday. (Editing by Peter Rutherford)
