WADA statement on BOA's appeal to CAS

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has noted the announcement of the British Olympic Association (BOA) to lodge an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the decision taken by the WADA Foundation Board last month that declared the BOA non-compliant to the World Anti-Doping Code.

Like all signatories to the Code, the BOA has the right to appeal the decision of the WADA Foundation Board under article 13.5 of the Code.

WADA has received formal notification and the statement of appeal in this matter. As with all cases, and adhering to the proper and normal respect for the integrity of the legal process, WADA will refrain from commenting further until the appeal has been completed and a decision rendered by CAS.
