Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter has lost his appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the International Olympic Committee’s decision to strip him and Jamaica’s men’s sprint relay team of their gold medal from the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The Switzerland-based court handed down the ruling on Thursday, six months after the appeal was heard on November 15, 2017.

“The Panel concluded that the reanalysis of Nesta Carter’s sample collected following the race at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games confirmed the presence of methylhexaneamine (MHA) and could not accept any of the arguments raised by Nesta Carter contending that the test results should be ignored or the IOC DP decision should otherwise be overturned for certain alleged failures,”
