UKA's response to CAS’ decision in the arbitration between the BOA and the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA):
 
The CAS Panel has ruled that the BOA bye-law related to the selection of British athletes for the Olympic Games was not in compliance with the World Anti-doping Code.


Such decision confirms the jurisprudence established last year in the case between the US Olympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee.

UKA response:

UK Athletics has always supported the BOA byelaw but welcomes the clarity the CAS decision brings to this issue. Athletes affected by the ruling are now eligible for the team, in both individual and relay events, and will be subject to the same selection criteria and process as every other British athlete.
