Sport Integrity Australia lodge appeal in Shayna Jack case

Sport Integrity Australia

Press Release

7th December 2020,

After careful consideration of the legal issues in Shayna Jack v Swimming Australia and Sport Integrity Australia, Sport Integrity Australia lodged a statement of appeal on Monday 7 December in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Appeal Division.

Sport Integrity Australia CEO David Sharpe said the decision to appeal is based on the need for clarity in the application of key anti-doping legal principles.

“Sport Integrity Australia will always act to ensure a level playing field for athletes,” Mr Sharpe said.  “In order to protect athletes and sporting competitions, we must have clarity and consistency in the application of the World Anti-Doping Code.”

Swimming Australia, the Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA), the World Anti-Doping Authority (WADA) and the Athlete also have appeal rights. The appeal periods for FINA and WADA are still running.

As the proceedings are confidential, Sport Integrity Australia will not be in a position to comment further on the substance of those proceedings.
