Ex-world champion Magnini wins appeal against doping ban

0

Former two-time world 100m freestyle champion Filippo Magnini of Italy had his four-year doping ban overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Thursday.

The 38-year-old had been banned in November 2018 by Italy’s anti-doping agency (Nado), after which he retired from the sport.

But Lausanne-based CAS found that “there was insufficient evidence to conclude that Filippo Magnini had violated the world anti-doping code”.
