Grenada’s 400m runner Bralon Taplin has had his appeal against his four-year doping suspension rejected by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Taplin was sanctioned for avoiding an in-competition drug test last April. He claimed he hadn’t been properly notified, a claim which CAS described as “implausible.”

“The sole arbitrator found that the evidence given by the athlete that he was never approached, followed or accompanied by anyone from the Grenada NADO to be implausible,” the CAS press release said.

“Considering all of the evidence accepted in this procedure, the sole arbitrator was comfortably satisfied that the athlete was guilty of the offence of evading sample collection and confirmed the four-year period of ineligibility, which commenced on 25 September 2019, the date on which the provisional suspension began.”
