CAS rejects India's appeal on Vikas Krishan
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) yesterday rejected India's appeal, filed after boxer Vikas Krishan was controversially eliminated from the London Olympics
Vikas was declared the winner of his 69 kg bout against Errol Spence before International Amateur Boxing Federation (AIBA) overturned the decision in American’s boxer.
A CAS statement said there was no provision for an appeal against AIBA’s decision.
“There is no provision in the AIBA Technical and Competition Rules allowing for an appeal against the decision of the competition jury in relation to a protest. The decision of the competition jury is final and cannot be appealed,” the CAS said.
“For this reason, your appeal letter cannot be considered and the appeal letter is hereby returned to you,” the statement added. —
