0 272

iocAFP-An Olympic summit has backed a plan for the world’s top sport court to take charge of sanctioning athletes who test positive for doping, withdrawing those duties from international sports federations. “Sanctions related to doping cases (are) to be delegated to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS),” said a statement issued after an International Olympic Committee summit aimed at overhauling the anti-doping fight. The summit also agreed “to make anti-doping testing independent from sports organisations.”
