German Court Rules in Favour of WADA

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was pleased to receive news today that a German court has dismissed an action brought by track and field athlete Bernard Lagat against WADA and the IAAF. The athlete was unsuccessful therefore in seeking damages for 500,000 Euros and an injunction precluding WADA from using the EPO test.

WADA has not yet received the full written reasoning of the regional court’s (Cologne) decision, only that the court ruled in favour of WADA and IAAF.
