The International Ski Federation (FIS) refers the case of Therese Johaug to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)

Press Release

9 March 2017

The International Ski Federation (FIS) has filed an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the decision issued by the Adjudication Committee of the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sport on 10 February 2017 in which the Norwegian skier Therese Johaug was found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation and sanctioned with a period of ineligibility of 13 months.

The FIS requests that the period of ineligibility imposed on the athlete be “reasonably extended”.

A CAS arbitration procedure is in progress. First, the parties will exchange written submissions and a Panel composed of either one or three arbitrators will be constituted. The Panel will then issue directions with respect to the holding of a hearing. Following the hearing, the Panel will deliberate and, at a later date, issue a decision in the form of an Arbitral Award.
