There’s much speculation that tomorrow, Monday the IOC lifetime ban which affects athletes such as Dwain Chambers could be lifted after reports the IOC has lost its case.
The court of arbitration for sport will announce on Monday its decision that the BOA’s bylaw does not comply with the World Anti-Doping Agency’s global code.
“The British Olympic Association can confirm that today, it has received from the Court of Arbitration for Sport the written decision in the arbitration between the BOA and the World Anti-Doping Association (Wada).”
Following a trip to California in 2002 Dwain tested positive for the banned steroid THG in 2003 and was suspended for two years. He later confessed to having taken a cocktail of banned substances.
IOC chief Colin Moynihan, last month reportedly stood firm that athletes such as Dwain would not compete at the 2012 Olympics however a recent survey revealed that the public were in support of Dwain returning to the GB Squad.
If as is expected that the IOC ban in uplifted athletes such as Dwain Chambers should they achieve the qualifying standard would be eligible to compete.
“Dwain has paid a very big price for a mistake he made as a young man, he has done his time both financially and personally but it’s now time to move on,” said a former member off Haringey Athletics club to Flyer Newspaper today.
