Centrefield advised British sprinter CJ Ujah who was cleared of deliberately taking drugs at the Tokyo Olympics

Posted on: October 12th, 2022 by cfEditor

Centrefield successfully represented British sprinter CJ Ujah following his Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics (held on 23 July to 8 August 2021) after the men’s 4x100m relay final on 6 August 2021.

The disciplinary proceedings which concluded recently involved a lengthy two-stage process.

On 18 February 2022, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, Switzerland, ruled that CJ Ujah had committed an ADRV under the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Anti-Doping Rules, which resulted in the disqualification of the Great Britain team in the men’s 4x100m relay final on 6 August 2021 and the forfeiture of their silver medals.
