Next WADA code to ban dopers from Olympics

Jun 03, 2012, 07:54 IST | Agencies

The next world anti-doping code, scheduled for 2015, will bid to prevent athletes who have been found guilty of doping from competing at the Olympic Games following the end of their suspension.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) had included a similar ruling in its Olympic charter in 2008.

But the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled last October that this was an illegal sanction, and the IOC was forced to backtrack and abandon the stipulation before next month’s London Olympics.

The 2015 world anti-doping code will seek to legalise a ban by implementing a “Limitation on Participation in the Olympic Games,” first draft of the code revealed on Friday.
