WADA propose Olympic ban in revised draft code

LONDON, June 2: The World Anti-Doping Agency WADA has issued a revised draft code inserting a proposed Olympic ban for serious doping offenders from January 2015.
The revision, if left in the final draft to be approved at a world conference on doping in sport in Johannesburg in November 2013, would mean athletes whose suspension ends before a Winter or Summer Games could be banned for one Olympic cycle.
The draft will have a third consultation phase between Dec. 1 this year and March 1, 2013. The second phase ended yesterday.
Article 10.15 of the draft code, published on the WADA website (www.Wada-ama.Org), is in line with an International Olympic Committee rule which was outlawed after a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) hearing last year. (Agencies)
