CAS to handle Olympic doping cases

The judging of doping cases at this year’s Rio de Janeiro Olympics and all future Games will be handled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) instead of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The IOC said on Tuesday 1 March that its Executive Board had approved the decision to remove itself from the process of judging suspected dopers in an effort to add more credibility to judgements.

“The IOC today decided that instead of the IOC —  in the case where there is an anti-doping rule violation arising during the Games — instead of the IOC appointing an anti-doping or a disciplinary commission of IOC members to hear it, that they, they think the time has come to step aside,” CAS President John Coates, who is also an IOC member, told reporters.
