Court of Arbitration for Sport We have received several comments from our readers and requests for clarification in relation to our previous post, regarding the decision by USADA to apply sanctions on Lance Armstrong. Some readers misinterpreted our position, mainly because of its emotive stance. You must appreciate that this blog does not take sides, but seeks to establish the truth and to offer a pragmatic view and opinion on all sports law developments. Similarly, our previous post did not have as an aim to examine whether Lance Armstrong committed the alleged offences or not. Instead, it had as an aim to establish whether the anti-doping organisation in question has the power and jurisdiction to apply sanctions on the athlete.
