The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) confirmed a 2019 out-of-competition test result that showed Jack ingested the banned substance Ligandrol, but the CAS said it did so by mistake.
The test became public when she was forced to withdraw from last year’s World Swimming Championships in South Korea.
Temporarily banned for four years, but the court found that because she did not intentionally take the drug, the sentence would be cut in half.
She will be free to return to competitive swimming next July, but that will be too late for her to qualify for the Olympics..
In a statement, the Sports Arbitration Court said the sole arbitrator had found « according to the scale of probability, that China Jack did not intentionally take Ligandrol and deemed it void of its responsibility proving that the anti-doping rule violation was not intentional. ».
« The CAS has confirmed in emphatic terms that I have not used Ligandrol intentionally, knowingly or recklessly in any way, ».
“There was no evidence presented by my accused about how this material entered my system.
“I have proven that I have never cheated, nor have I knowingly or knowingly used prohibited material.
Ahead of Jack’s positive test, the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority issued a warning that the number of athletes caught using drugs in their system had jumped from two in 2015 to nine in 2017..
Jack wrote on Instagram: « Anti-doping rules are far from satisfactory and could yield results that are far from fair. ».
« I’m going back swimming – the sport I’ve loved all my life and the sport I’ll cherish a little bit more, » Jack wrote.
The court’s decision can be appealed by the World Anti-Doping Agency or the governing body for Global Swimming, FINA.
Jack’s case gained notoriety just days after Australian swimmer Mac Horton refused to stand on the stage in protest against Chinese swimmer Sun Yang, who was accused of an anti-doping offense but was allowed to swim in the World Championships.
The Anti-Doping Authority, now known as Sports Integrity Australia, has been criticized in some quarters for the length of time it took to establish its case..
