Carter awaits CAS hearing

first_img “The Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter has filed an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the International Olympic Committee (IOC) regarding the decision issued by the IOC Disciplinary panel on 25 January 2017 in which he was found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. A consequence of such finding was the disqualification of Nesta Carter and the other members of the Jamaican team from the Men’s 4x100m relay at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games in which they had achieved the gold medal,” read the CAS statement. “Nesta Carter seeks to set aside the challenged decision in order for the Jamaican team to be reinstated as gold medallists.” APPEAL FILED Nesta Carter’s appeal against his disqualification from the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games for a anti-doping violation has officially been filed through the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The 31-year-old will in a few days be advised of a hearing date into the matter. CAS confirmed the development yesterday noting that the Jamaican was contesting the decision issued by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Disciplinary Panel on January 25, in which the sprinter was found to have committed a violation of anti-doping rules during the Beijing Games. Carter’s sample retroactively tested positive for the prohibited substance methylhexaneamine, resulting in him and Jamaica’s gold medal winning 4x100m relay team being disqualified and stripped of the medals won in the Chinese city. In a media release, CAS outlined that the arbitration procedure is now in progress and advised that the parties will exchange written submissions after which a panel of three arbitrators will be constituted. This panel will then issue directives regarding the holding of a hearing into the matter and then make a decision after its deliberations.last_img read more
