    This is shocking news! Could it be that she wanted to be on top again so bad?

    Just speaking in general, when ever athletes get caught for doping, they often say they took it inadvertently in the form of a medicine. I'm certainly not accusing ZM of anything suspicious but regardless of her innocent action, it kinda opens up a can of worms and doesn't help her reputation whatsoever. Once your name has been associated with a drug incident it's hard to hake it. (see Lance Armstrong & cyclists, MLB home run hitters)

    I suppose this could be end of ZM's career given her age.

    In the Doping Hearing Panel Decision it says:

    "The athlete did not declare on the Doping Control Form that she had taken any medications or supplements in the 7 days prior to the test."

    Very suspicous!

    There is a big spread on it over the sports page of the local newspaper.

    This is really the end.

    In the Doping Hearing Panel Decision it says:

    "The athlete did not declare on the Doping Control Form that she had taken any medications or supplements in the 7 days prior to the test."

    Very suspicous!
    For the doping control declaration, I can see it may have just slipped the mind at that time. I've seen that happen in other situations. A momentary distraction can cause mistakes.

    It's very unfortunate indeed. Looking at the HKBA press conference material, it seems that BWF has conducted a hearing before making the banning decision. At the hearing, Zhou Mi already told BWF that she didn't know the chinese medicine she took contained clenbuterol.

    Unless Zhou Mi and HKBA can provide stronger evidence (Zhou Mi said the strongest evidence is that she lost in early rounds in Singapore and Indonesian SS - I don't think this is a valid evidence), I don't think BWF will change the decision. Although I feel very sorry for Zhou Mi, I understand that BWF should pose a strong stance against doping, even if it's taken inadvertently.

    Looks like Zhou Mi practically will be retired soon due her age. Unfortunately she will miss London Games, major target for all athletes. The last international bdm tourney before 2 years banned for ZM is Macau GP Gold when she lost to eventual winner Li Xuerui at semifinal.

    Those interested can refer to Sairul Ayob's case in 2007. It's not posted in BC but I remember reading that Sairul said he did not fill up the doping form cos he took the meds more than 7 days before the test.
    Anyway, in his case, Sample A was positive, Sample B negative, ban lifted (not sure how this sample A, B thing works though).
    ZM's case seem to be beyond that stage already, hope they took 2 samples at the testing time.

    ..perhaps her being an independent player caused her to be less aware and not monitored/watched properly in comparison to if she was still in the CBA??..

    AFAIK they take enough sample to take two tests, test one & if it fails use the other for a "b" test. If A passes then B is not used. If A fails, then B is used If both fail then it is referred to authorities, if B passes the athlete is ok even if a failed. thus sairul had no problem.

    I thought she was HK player, not independent?

    Either way it is a wake up call to the smaller nations competing to have robust procedures in place to protect their athletes from accidental ingestion through seemingly innocuous medical treatment. The only safe way for an athlete is to not take anything unless approved by their team doctor, and even then check - because it is the athletes career at stake.

    .
    I brought that up cos it was reported in Sin Chew that ZM's Sample A tested +ve. I was just wondering if she had her Sample B tested, supposed to be done at diferent lab. Sairul fought his case, KLRC supported him, ZM now also sponsored by KLRC.

    It is really a very unfortunate incident for Zhou Mi, but she is a veteran
    player and has been with CHN national team for years.
    I am sure it was not the first time she was being drug tested.
    It was a very careless decision of taking the over-counter flu medicine, she should have known better of its risk.

    Certainly hope there will be an appealing process for her and wish her
    best luck.

    would a non BWF tournament / league accept her to play?

    what I mean is would she be welcomed with open arms to compete in CBL or represent european clubs in their league matches?

    She is not allowed to play in any tournaments. This is very clear. Even those who has banned before "non-badminton" athletes did not participate in any sports which they are involved all together. No leagues, whatsoever.

    Sad for Zhou Mi actually. But she can still coach. I hope HKBA will strongly help her to appeal the case.

    BWF has no jurrisdiction in 'non BWF Sanctioned matches'. If the case againts her is 'weak' and the punishment 'un-fair' perhaps a League (Non BWF) may see fit to have her as part of their Tournament.

    This would allow her to continue playing for a living and passion...
