Jamaican sprinter Steve Mullings has lost his appeal against his lifetime ban for his second doping violation.
Mullings, who was banned from athletics by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission in 2011, had his appeal dismissed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
In 2004, Mullings was given a two-year suspension following a positive test for a banned substance, and in June 2011, he also tested positive for another banned substance and was subsequently given a life ban.
Following the Commission’s ruling, Mullings filed an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport requesting the annulment of the JADCO Disciplinary Panel’s decision.
