British Olympic lifetime ban case set for March hearing

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has scheduled a hearing on March 12 to study the case between the British Olympic Association (BOA) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) regarding the BOA's lifetime ban for sanctioned dopers.

If CAS rules in favour of WADA, then the BOA will have to drop its byelaw that currently prohibits any British athlete sanctioned for a doping infringement being barred from ever competing in the Olympic Games.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
