According to CAS, “the athlete challenged his non-selection for the Olympic Games; the application was declared inadmissible; award in preparation.”

Morgan, who threw 59.08m to finish fourth at the Jamaica Olympic Trials, took to social media to share his views, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the tremendous support you have given me and my family over the last couple of weeks.”

He also thank Dr. Crowne for offering his defence while making it clear “I believe in the rule of law and l will respect the decision of CAS. As an athlete all you ever want to do is represent your country.”

Morgan also said “I made it clear from the beginning I have no beef with my Athletic Association.”

“This episode has only made me stronger I’m now determined more than ever to be in London next year for World Championships,” said the national record holder at 68.19m.
