Alberto Salazar was banned in 2019 for a series of anti-doping rule violations

Alberto Salazar’s four-year ban from athletics has been upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

The 63-year-old, who ran the Nike Oregon Project, had appealed the decision imposed by the US Anti-Doping Agency in 2019.

A four-year ban on physician and endocrinologist Dr Jeffrey Brown, who worked alongside Salazar, was also upheld.

In a statement, CAS confirmed its finding that Salazar and Brown “committed a number of anti-doping rule violations (ADRVs) and has confirmed the four-year bans imposed on them.”

Salazar is the former coach of Mo Farah, whom he guided to four Olympic gold medals and six world titles.

However, Salazar has never been found guilty of doping his athletes, nor has Farah been implicated in any of the rulings against him.

CAS ruled Salazar guilty of three offenses, namely possession of testosterone, complicity in Brown’s administration of a prohibited method, and tampering with the doping control process.
