Ye hoping to find her form before Rio
Ye Shiwen sent shockwaves through the world of swimming at London 2012, as she stormed to gold in the 400m medley in world-record time - going quicker than men's champion Ryan Lochte over the final 50m. The performance sparked controversy, but the Chinese prodigy, then 16, repeatedly tested clean for banned substances.
However, Ye has struggled for form and fitness since her incredible medley double in London (200m and 400m), failing to win a medal at the 2013 world championships.
In spite of a hat-trick of golds at the 2014 Asian Games, she may miss the chance to defend her 400m medley title in Rio, having finished just 7th at Chinese Olympic qualifying in April 2016 (22 seconds off her world record time).
