Cyclist Lizzie Armitstead has been cleared to compete in the Rio Olympic Games after winning an appeal against an anti-doping rule violation over her whereabouts.
The 27-year-old London 2012 silver medallist faced a suspension for three failures relating to her whereabouts which led her missing drug tests.
But she appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), which ruled UK Anti-Doping's doping control officer had failed to follow procedure and her August 2015 missed test was declared void.
She has two other missed tests on her record and a further absence would lead to a rule violation and sanction.
Armitstead said she was pleased that the CAS accepted her position, adding: "I have always been and will always be a clean athlete and have been vocal in my anti-doping stance throughout my career."
