Norway cross-country Star Sundby Loses His Title after Doping Infringement

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Sundby failed two tests for salbutamol, a medication he used to treat asthma. The tests took place during the World Cup events in Switzerland and Italy in December 2014.

The 31-Year-old burst into tears after the decision. 

– This is an unreasonable judgment. It is completely impossible to accept this verdict,‚ÄĚ said Sundby at a press briefing at the Ulleval stadium in Oslo.

Sundby has been suffering asthma since his childhood. The Norwegian ski Federation President Erik R√łste stressed, Sundby have never had the intention to break the rules. The CAS however stressed that the athlete should have required a special exception approval. Team doctor Gabrielsen said he had understood the rules wrong.

Now Sundby have to pay back premiums to International Ski Federation (FIS) reported VG.
