IAAF v Cyrus Rutto

IAAF v Cyrus Rutto

A decision in the case of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) v Cyrus Rutto has been published by the Disciplinary Tribunal.

On 4th April 2019 Mr Rutto was charged by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) with an anti-doping rule violation in connection with abnormalities in blood samples of his Athlete Biological Passport that are alleged to indicate blood manipulation.

The Disciplinary Tribunal panel, consisting of Justice Ahamed Ebrahim, Steven Bainbridge and Philipp Kotlaba, found that the athlete had committed an anti-doping rule violation pursuant to Article 2.2 of the 2018 IAAF rules and therefore ruled that a period of ineligibility of four years would be imposed upon Mr Rutto. 

The secretariat to the Disciplinary Tribunal is managed by Sport Resolutions.

A copy of the full decision can be accessed via the related documents tab on the right-hand side.
