Athletics: Sports Tribunal CAS deals with acquittal for athlete Naser

Naser was acquitted last month by a Global Athletics Association tribunal. As a result, she avoided a two-year suspension for missing a number of doping checks. However, AIU disagrees with that ruling and decided to appeal to the CAS.

However, the Tribunal ruled that one of the four missed checks could not be charged to it. The three proven offences were then found not to have taken place within 12 months, which dropped the charges.
