WADA or World Anti-Doping Agency ruled that British Olympic Association (BOA) controversial life-ban on doping athletes is ruled as ‘non-compliant’.
This would mean banned British sprinter such as Dwain Chambers has a shot at making this London Olympics.
It was confirmed after a meeting in Montreal that BOA current life-ban rules does not comply with the global uniform code endorsed by the International Olympic Committee.
Under the WADA code, signatories which includes BOA have to comply with WADA penalties, of which doping case of Dwain Chambers magnitude would only typically warrant a two-year ban under WADA rules, not a life-ban.
BOA will now next appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport to uphold their bylaw.
