Swimming Australia has received notification of the decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) regarding Shayna Jack’s appeal against the length of her suspension.
We respect and support the CAS decision handed down confirming the two-year suspension and the process which has been undertaken to arrive at that decision.
Swimming Australia has always been in strong support of the approach to anti-doping to protect both the sport and the athlete, while also supporting its athlete through the process.
Jack was previously found by the Sole Arbitrator to have, on the balance of probabilities, not intentionally ingested ligandrol and considered that she had discharged her onus of proving that the anti-doping rule violation was not intentional.
Swimming Australia will support Shayna in her next steps as appropriate, and having served her suspension in full, can resume her involvement in the sport.
