World 100m champion Christian Coleman Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) shortened his two-year suspension by six months for violating Friday’s anti-doping rules, but the American sprinter will still not be able to participate in the Tokyo Olympics .
Coleman’s original judgment should be effective before May 13, 2022. After the Lausanne court reduced it, the Americans will be able to participate in the game again after November 14 this year.
The postponement of the Tokyo Olympics is scheduled for July 23 to August 8. Coleman will not participate in the Olympic medal competition, but in Belgrade from March 18th to 20th next year, he will be able to defend the title of world indoor champion at a distance of 60 meters from the Birmingham 2018 competition.
The CAS committee held that Coleman violated the provisions of the anti-doping regulations, but ruled that “the degree of negligence was lower than the degree of negligence in the appeal ruling.”
Coleman failed to provide samples for testing at the above locations three times within 12 months, which is considered a violation of anti-doping rules.
Coleman said in a statement: “I am very happy that the court correctly determined that I am a’pure’ athlete, but to my disappointment, I will not be able to participate in the Olympics this summer.” The World Cup Championship will be held in July 2022. Held in Eugene, Oregon, USA.
The American sprinter won the 100 meters at the 2019 World Championships in Doha in 9.76 seconds and is considered the favorite of the gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics.
“I look forward to representing the United States in the two world championships in 2022, especially in the summer world championships. This will be the first world championships held in the United States. I plan to defend the title in the new world championships. He said: “Olympic 100m champion. “Coleman said in a statement to Reuters.
