INCHEON: Wushu exponent Tai Cheau Xuen, who delivered Malaysia’s first gold medal at the 17th Asian Games here, has failed a dope test and will be stripped of her medal, according to the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) – but Malaysia is not about to return the medal without a fight.

Malaysian officials feel there is something wrong with the chain of custody and that the sample took too long to get to the nearby doping centre. They believe it could have been tampered with.
