On Monday, it paid off the lengthy appeal process to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) for Jacques, whose four-year ban has been reduced to two years, starting on her temporary suspension date (July 12, 2019).
The CAS, in its ruling, found that Jack « did not intentionally ingest Ligandrol and considered that it had void its liability for establishing that the anti-doping rule violation was not intentional ».
However, the watered-down sentence still means that Jack will not be able to participate in the rescheduled Tokyo Olympics because she will not have time to qualify. The earliest time you can swim for Australia will be in the Swimming World Championships in May 2022.
In a lengthy Instagram post titled « INNOCENT, » Jack, who has always emphasized that it is not a drug deceptive, said the CAS had ruled in its favor « in sure terms. ».
“Anti-doping rules are far from satisfactory and could lead to results that are far from fair. In my case, it has proven that I have never been deceived nor have I used banned material intentionally or knowingly, ”Jack wrote on Instagram.
« I can’t change the rules and the rules will remain the same for now. Therefore, I accept this decision positively and grateful to resume my career as a swimmer next year.
“I never doubted myself for a minute throughout this ordeal and never allowed my integrity to be exposed. I walk a little longer tonight with the fact that this ordeal is finally over. I will return for swimming – the sport that I have loved all my life and the sport I will cherish a little more. .
Before the positive test, Jack emerged as one of Australia’s brightest young swimming stars. She was part of the gold medal-winning Australia 4x100m relay team, alongside Bronte Campbell, Emma McCune and Kate Campbell, at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
