Testing The Drug Testers In Court Of Arbitration For Sport Appeals

28 Jul 2008

UK Sport’s drug testing procedures were under attack in the Court of Arbitration for Sport last week. In appeals from the British Weightlifter’s Association Disciplinary Panel, two weightlifters undertook a wholesale attack on the sample collection procedures undertaken by UK Sport at the British National Championships and also on the sample testing procedures undertaken at King’s College’s Drug Control Centre on behalf of UK Sport. Doubt could be cast on positive doping findings undertaken by UK Sport across many sports in the UK in the event the Appellants are successful.

Elisa Holmes represented the British Weightlifters Association, defending UK Sport’s procedures.
