London Olympics – Russia files application to Court Of Arbitration
by ISAF on 14 Aug 2012
London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition was held in Weymouth and Portland, Great Britain. On 11 August 2012 ISAF received notification of an application filed by the Russian Olympic Committee to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
The application challenged the result of the Women's Match Racing Semi Final result between Spain and Russia.
ISAF responded to the application and the case has subsequently been dismissed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on 11 August.
ISAF's rules, policies and procedures assure athletes a level playing field and ISAF is disappointed that the Russian Olympic Committee filed the application to CAS. ISAF is pleased that CAS was able to make their decision so quickly and allow the Women's Match Racing Finals to continue uninterrupted today.
