  在10月19日晚进行的1500米比赛中,本已获得金牌的邢慧娜遭遇比赛第二名、山西选手刘青的申诉。经仲裁委员会仲裁,邢慧娜在比赛中犯规被取消金牌。邢慧娜也成为十运会上第一个被取消金牌的选手。

 Chinese Olympic champion Xing Huina was Wednesday stripped of her gold in the women's 1,500m final in the China National Games for fouling second-placed Liu Qing.

  Xing had elbowed Liu in the final meters and sprinted to take first spot, the National Games Arbitration Panel announced late Wednesday.

  She was stripped of her medal and Liu was announced as the winner.

  Xing had clocked four minutes and 3.97 seconds. Liu finished in 4:04.00 followed by Huang Jing in 4:10.13.

  Even Xing's time was way off the world record of 3:50.46 set by compatriot Qu Yunxia at the 1993 China National Games, and nearly seven seconds off the world best in the event so far this year.

  Xing had earlier matched her 10,000m Athens gold with victory in the same event.

  On Monday, she beat Sun Yingjie and Zhou Chunxiu also by outsprinting them down the home stretch. Sun and Zhou had placed first and second respectively in the marathon a day earlier.

  On Thursday, China's three strongest middle and long distance women runners will meet up again in the preliminary rounds of the 5,000m. The final is scheduled for Saturday.

  "Tomorrow I'll run in the 5,000m preliminary, so it is too early to think about another gold medal," Xing had said before being stripped of her gold.

  "I just want to race one race at a time and then we will see what happens afterward."
