Disgraced coach Alberto Salazar lodges appeal with CAS

Alberto Salazar has lodged an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport against his ban from athletics.

The long-distance coach, along with endocrinologist Dr. Jeffrey Brown were served with four-year suspensions by the US Anti-Doping Agency at the end of September.

A statement from USADA at the time said Salazar and Brown were being punished for "orchestrating and facilitating prohibited doping conduct" at the Nike Oregon Project.

The training camp - designed to develop U.S. endurance athletes - was shut down in October following the investigation by USADA into Salazar and his training methods.

The Oregon Project had been home to four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah for six years. The Great Britain runner has always denied any wrongdoing and has never been found guilty of a doping violation.

A statement from CAS says they've registered appeals from both Salazar and Brown, but they're unlikely to be heard before March of 2020.

The statement in full reads:

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has registered the appeals filed by Mr. Alberto Salazar and Dr. Jeffrey Brown against the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in relation to the decisions rendered by the American Arbitration Association, North American Court of Arbitration for Sport Panel on 30 September 2019 and 7 October 2019, respectively, in which they were found to have committed anti-doping rule violations and sanctioned with a four-year period of ineligibility.

Two CAS arbitration procedures have been opened. The parties have requested additional time to file their written submissions and evidence.

Accordingly, at this stage, it appears that the hearings in these two matters are unlikely to take place before March 2020.
