Coleman to miss Oly despite ban cut


Geneva: World 100 metres champion Christian Coleman’s two-year ban for missing three doping tests has been reduced by six months to 18 months, the Court of Arbitratio­n for Sport

said on Friday. The 25-year-old American will still miss the reschedule­d Tokyo Olympics ths year as his ban

runs until November 14. Coleman will, however, be eligible to defend his world indoor and outdoor titles next year.

CAS “partially upheld” the Athletics Integrity Unit’s ruling but found Coleman’s “degree of negligence to be lower”.
