‘Tough questions need to be asked’: Campbell slams FINA amid Sun saga

Cate Campbell has called for "tough questions" to be asked of FINA after disgraced Chinese swimmer Sun Yang's career-ending ban.

Swimming's world governing body is under fire for its handling of Yang's case, with the 28-year-old suspended for eight years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport last Friday.

FIFA issued Horton a "warning letter" but Campbell backed her teammate's conduct throughout the ordeal.

"Every athlete has the right to stand up to what they believe in and Mack is a clear supporter of clean sport," Campbell said.

"He's a man of integrity and I don't think this decision has vindicated him in any way shape or form, I think that it has just confirmed his courage as an athlete.

"We need to wait until the appeals process has gone through before we start demanding things (like apologies) because we have to allow these things to run their due course.

"But I think that Mack has definitely proved his worth.

"It was a brave step on his behalf and standing up for what you believe in can be really tough but for him it's worked out really well."
