As Australia appeals to have North Korea banned from next year’s London Games over a doping row, the shattered Olympic dreams of  Matildas could be revived.

A 2012 Olympic berth was narrowly missed by the national women’s soccer team after it finished third at the Asian qualifying tournament in September behind Japan and North Korea, who claimed the two Games spots.

“We think it’s strange that a team is banned for 2015 and not 2012 so we have raised the issue with WADA, the IOC and FIFA but so far to no avail,” Football Federation Australia national teams chief John Boultbee told AAP.

Liao Hui, the Chinese Olympic weightlifting champion, has been suspended for nearly three years for doping.

The announcement was made by the state news agency Xinhua that also suggested that Hui would be missing the London Games.

Xinhua said Liao appeared on a list of 10 banned weightlifters issued by the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) and will be suspended until September 30, 2014.
