The rules of the CAS Anti-Doping Division and the CAS Ad Hoc Division at the Olympic Games – A commentary
Published in the International Sports Law Review (ISLR), Issue 1/2017, Thomson Reuters UK, (March 2017)
The CAS has been adjudicating on a variety of disputes arising on the occasion of the Olympic Games (OG) through its CAS Ad Hoc Divisions since 1996. Over the years, it has dealt with qualification matters, doping and other disciplinary issues, primarily as a last instance body. The Rio Games marked the first time in the history of CAS where the international sports tribunal was in charge of doping-related matters as a first-instance authority (through its newly established CAS Anti-Doping Division, ADD).
