- CAS 2017_A_4984 Nesta Carter vs IOC
May 31, 2018
Previously in January 2017 the Jamaican Athlete Nesta Carter was sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) after reanalysis of his samples, collected during the 2008 Olympic Games, revealed the presence of a prohibited substance. Thereupon the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld this IOC sanction in May 2018.
In April 2021 the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Athlete after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Clomifene.
After notification in April 2021 the Athlete filed a statement in his defence and he was heard for the Jamaica Independent Anti-Doping Panel. The Athlete accepted the test result, denied the intentional use of the substance and requested for the imposition of a reprimand.
The Athlete explained with evidence that he underwent medical treatment for his condition with prescribed medication whereas he was retiring from athletics because of this condition. In addition he applied in May 2021 for a TUE which was dismissed by the TUE Committee in June 2021.
The Panel finds that the presence of a prohibited substance has been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that he committed an anti-doping rule violation.
The Panel holds that the Athlete's TUE application was dismissed and prior that he was sanctioned for an anti-doping rule violation committed in August 2008. Yet the Panel regards that this violation was not committed within the statue of limitation of 10 years for the determination of a second anti-doping rule violation in this case.
Therefore the Jamaica Independent Anti-Doping Panel decides on 25 November 2021 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the decision.
