Dope ban ruling within a month, says Moynihan

BRITISH Olympic Association chief Lord Moynihan expects to know within a month whether the body has won its legal battle to prevent drug cheats ever representing Team GB.

Moynihan said he was cautiously optimistic after yesterday’s Court of Arbitration for Sport hearing in London, which will determine whether sprinter Dwain Chambers can compete at London 2012.

The CAS panel has now retired to consider its verdict, and Moynihan said: “It was a good day, all the arguments were put strongly. My expectation is [the verdict in] a month.”
