British Olympic Association chief exec 'sad' over Chambers ruling

Andy Hunt, the British Olympic Association Chief Executive and Team GB Chef de Mission for the Olympics, has tweeted his reaction after a court overturned the BOA's policy of Olympic lifetime bans for drugs cheats:

Sad about outcome of CAS case with WADA. We respect their decision, but were right to fight this for @teamgb & all clean athletes worldwide

Ah_newlogo_normal

We will continue to fight for tougher more realistic sanctions for serious 1st time doping offences - minimum of 4 years + 1 Olympic Games

Ah_newlogo_normal

We will seek testing methods that are more proactive, reliable & treat athletes with greater fairness & consistency - Biological passports
