August’s issue of World Sports Law Report!

With the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio past the finish line and the Paralympics due to start shortly, despite the sporting prowess to be celebrated, the sporting community continues to feel the effects of the McLaren report and the ensuing controversy surrounding Russia’s participation in the Games and the serious questions it poses about the global fight against doping. The Court of Arbitration for Sport’s (‘CAS’) dismissal of the appeal by the Russian Paralympic Committee on 23 August 2016 against its suspension from the Paralympic Games by the International Paralympic Committee is the latest ruling in a wave of arbitration procedures that have cast a long shadow on sport and elite competition. 

August’s edition of World Sports Law Report features detailed analysis on the findings of the McLaren report, the aftermath and whether reforms to anti-doping are needed. Associate Professor Terry Engelberg and Dr Stephen Moston from James Cook University provide a detailed four-page article on the McLaren Report, which also details the nature of the state-sponsored doping in Russia.

Also in the issue, detailed analysis is provided on the FIFA and CAS ruling on rescission/buy out clauses, with Jordi López Batet, Partner at Pintó Ruiz & Del Valle providing commentary on the reasoning followed in the case. We then look at non-gambling related match fixing (also known as ‘tanking’) in an article that sheds light on the legal remedies available and how different sports deal with the problem.
