Chinese trio given doping bans
Lili Yin raises her arms in triumph
Lili Yin will not be allowed to compete for two years
Three Chinese athletes have been suspended for two years after testing positive for banned drugs.

Female distance runners Liqing Song and Lili Yin and men's 20km walker Yunfeng Lui were punished by the Chinese athletics federation when they returned positive results in out-of-competition drugs tests.

The suspensions were announced in the latest newsletter from the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF).

The bans are yet another blow to the authorities' efforts to rid Chinese athletics of drugs.
