Alberto Salazar: Court of Arbitration for Sport registers coach's appeal
Last Updated: 12/11/19 7:29am
The Court of Arbitration for Sport has registered an appeal by track coach Alberto Salazar against his ban for doping violations.
CAS says Salazar and Dr. Jeffrey Brown appealed against their four-year bans by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, although a hearing will take several months to prepare.
After a multi-year USADA investigation, Salazar and Brown were found guilty of doping violations linked to the Nike Oregon Project training camp.
USADA said Salazar ran experiments with supplements and testosterone, and possessed and trafficked the banned substance.
The case also related to falsified and incomplete medical records that disguised the work.
CAS says Salazar and Brown asked for more time to file "written submissions and evidence," adding the hearing is "unlikely to take place before March."
Verdicts typically take at least a further several weeks.
The Nike Oregon Project has since been shut down after Salazar received the four-year ban for doping offences.
