Everyone will be watching the man Horton beat at the Olympics — defending world champion Sun Yang from China, a man widely considered the greatest freestyle swimmer of all time.
In the West, much has been written about Sun and the hammer that was used to smash a vial of his blood, preventing drug testers taking it for analysis last September.
Sun and Horton’s war of words:
- No apology over Horton’s Sun comments, Chiller says
- Chinese hackers ‘may have attacked census over Olympics drugs spat’
- Swimming Australia website attacked after Horton’s drug cheat remarks
- ‘Sun Yang pisses purple’: French swimming star joins doping criticism
