Swimming's world governing body has cleared Chinese Olympic champion Sun Yang of any wrongdoing following complaints over his behavior at this month's world championships in Russia.FINA executive director Cornel Marculescu told Reuters the altercation that led to a complaint against Sun was the result of overcongestion in the warmup pool in Kazan and did not warrant further action.A Brazilian coach said Sun had tried to kick and elbow Larissa Oliveira after they collided with each other in the warmup pool.Sun later withdrew from the final of the 1,500-meter freestyle, an event he won at previous world championships and at the London Olympics – and in which he holds the world record – citing a heart problem.
