Since 2003 requests have been made each year to issue a dispensation for a naturally elevated high level of Haemoglobin (Hb) for this Athlete. All requests have been unsuccessful in persuading the FIS that this Athlete has a naturally high elevated level of Hb. FIS does agree that this Athlete does have a modestly elevated level of Hb but it is not sufficient to justify issuing a dispensation pursuant to Rule FIS B.4.8. Far be it for the CAS Panel to substitute its views to those of the experts who have declined to grant the dispensation to this Athlete for a naturally high elevated level of Hb over the past 3 years. The Panel is being asked to make a medical expert’s judgement through the guise of cancelling a Notification of Start Prohibition. It is not for the Panel to perform an evaluation similar to that contemplated by the FIS B.4.8, which would apply for the duration of the Olympic Games.
