OLYMPICS

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

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.

Sprinter Dwain Cham­bers (left) – who’s served a ban – could com­pete at the 2012 Lon­don Olympics if the BOA loses.

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