(Newser) – Ye Shiwen was "clean" when she set a world record in the women's 400-meter individual medley at the London Olympics, according to the British Olympic Association chairman. Lord Colin Moynihan confirmed that Ye went through the World Anti-Doping Agency's drug testing program, the BBC reports. "That's the end of the story. Ye Shiwen deserves recognition for her talent," he said. Moynihan's comments come after a US swimming coach practically accused Ye of doping. Ye has denied the implication, and has found support from China's anti-doping chief, fellow swimmers and Olympians, experts, and International Olympic Committee officials.
