Activity Integrity Australia (SIA) and the World Ant-Doping Company (WADA) have appealed the size of the two-calendar year ban handed to Australian swimmer Shayna Jack.

Jack examined positive to the banned drug Ligandrol prior to the 2019 planet championships and the SIA provisionally suspended the Commonwealth Games gold medallist for four several years in March.

Past month, the Courtroom of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) lessened that suspension to two yrs.

SIA main executive David Sharpe explained in a assertion the “final decision to attraction is based mostly on the require for clarity in the application of essential anti-doping authorized concepts”.

“Sport Integrity Australia will generally act to assure a amount taking part in area for athletes,” Mr Sharpe mentioned.

“In get to safeguard athletes and sporting competitions, we have to have clarity and regularity in the software of the Planet Anti-Doping Code.”

Several hours after SIA’s charm was announced, WADA unveiled it also lodged an attractiveness with the CAS in excess of what they perceived as a lenient suspension.

When handing down its ruling, the CAS said on the stability of chances, “Shayna Jack did not deliberately ingest Ligandrol and deemed that she had discharged her onus of proving that the anti-doping rule violation was not intentional”.

As it stands, she is absolutely free to resume swimming following July, but that will be far too late to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics.
