The decision of the Federal Tribunal of April 12, 2010 relates the matter of Yücel KOP v. International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and Turkish Athletic Federation (TAF).

As sport arbitration cases go, this one is quite interesting because it raises some delicate issues, which the Federal Tribunal disposed of without perhaps reviewing them as far in depth as it could have.

The case involved a professional cyclist who tested positive for testosterone in June 2007 and again in February 2011. The German anti-doping agency referred the case to the German Arbitral Institution (DIS) and in June 2012 the sole arbitrator appointed by the DIS held that the Decision Limits had not been properly established in the case as there were significant differences between the results of the A and B Samples taken from the athlete.

The judgement is far more interesting for its factual background than for its legal findings; it puts an end to highly publicized legal battle between Alexander Legkov (and several other Russian athletes) and the IOC, which lies at the heart of the so-called “Russian doping scandal”.
