Press Release

5th February 2018

Athletes are entitled to have confidence in judicial processes at all levels, more particularly before the CAS.

CAS has heard the comments of IOC President, Thomas Bach and acknowledges the concerns raised which CAS will thoroughly examine.

The reasoned decisions in high profile cases are critically important. The Panels in the cases of the 39 Russian athletes are working on them, and we look forward to their publication as soon as possible

CAS will continue to evolve to ensure consistency and quality of jurisprudence.

John Coates AC
President, International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS)
