Changes in medal standingsEdit

In June 2013, Danish swimmer Mads Glæsner was stripped by FINA of a gold and bronze medal from the 400- and 1500-meter freestyle after testing positive for levomethamphetamine.[3]

In January 2014 the Court of Arbitration for Sport partially overturned FINA's ruling and returned the gold medal in 1500 m freestyle.[4]
