IAAF appeals Greek pair's clearing

The IAAF has appealed against the decision to clear Greek sprinters Kostas Kenteris and Katerina Thanou of doping violations.

The IAAF has appealed against the decision to clear Greek sprinters Kostas Kenteris and Katerina Thanou of doping violations.

Kenteris and Thanou were last month excused by the Greek athletics federation after missing a series of dope tests, although their former coach Christos Tzekos was suspended for four years.

But the IAAF has tonight referred the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, describing the decision to exonerate the pair as “erroneous”.

Both athletes will be suspended, pending the outcome of the CAS decision.
