Shayna Jack to appeal four-year ban at Court of Arbitration for Sport, after decision by ASADA panel


Australian swimmer Shayna Jack is heading to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to appeal a four-year ban recommended by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority’s rule violation panel.

The 20-year old tested positive to the banned substance Ligandrol before last year’s World Swimming Championships in South Korea.

ASADA has not named the swimmer on its list of sanctioned athletes and is not required to do so until 21 days after any appeal process has been finalised.

According to the anti-doping body’s website: “We can publicly release information regarding an athlete’s ban once a final determination has been made [pending any appeals]by the relevant sport or the Court of Arbitration for Sport.”
