 CAS Secretary General: Sun Yangs achievements are still valid and can be appealed


On February 27, CAS said it would announce the arbitration result of Sun Yang case on February 28, and CAS also stressed that on the day of official announcement of the result, the Secretary General of CAS would announce the result to the media at CAS headquarters and issue a short statement.

When the results were made public, CAS secretary general said in a statement: Sun Yang failed to cooperate with the Anti Doping Agency in the inspection, and he did not give sufficient and strong reasons and evidence for the destruction of the test samples, so he violated the relevant Anti Doping rules. CAS has imposed an eight-year ban on Sun Yang. The ban begins today. According to Swiss law, Sun Yang can appeal to the Supreme Court of the Swiss Federation within 30 days if he refuses to accept the arbitration result. However, his previous achievements are still valid. It can be concluded from the statement of CAS secretary general that CAS does not recognize Sun Yangs evidence of destroying the samples, which is also the reason for issuing the eight-year suspension ticket. In addition, CAS also said that this is not the final judgment, and Sun Yang has the right to appeal. Moreover, although CAS suspended Sun Yang for eight years, it did not deprive him of his past achievements. Source: Netease sports editor: Lu Ting
