Statement on Shayna Jack decision

Sport Integrity Australia

Sport Integrity Australia acknowledges the decision made by the Court of Arbitration for Sport to maintain the 2 year sanction imposed on Shayna Jack following an appeal process.

Sport Integrity Australia’s decision to appeal the original ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sport was based on the need for clarity in the application of key anti-doping legal principles. Sport Integrity Australia is taking time to review the full decision in detail prior to making any assessment on the application of those principles going forward.

Sport Integrity Australia CEO David Sharpe said the matter is now closed.

“This matter wasn’t about pursuing an individual athlete, it was very much about providing clarity and consistency to athletes and sports in the application of the World Anti-Doping Code,” Mr Sharpe said.
