BOA face court over drugs ban
THE British Olympic Association (BOA) will take its fight to keep a lifetime ban for drugs cheats to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The BOA is challenging World Anti-doping Agency policy that the ban is “non-compliant” with its code.

Association chairman Lord Coe said: “It is a policy that reflects the culture and character of Team GB.”
