(CAS ADD) on 8 December 2016 in which he was found to have committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV). As a consequence, the results obtained by the Athlete in the Men’s -52kg boxing event at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (Rio OG) were disqualified.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) filed an application with the CAS ADD, the body
authorised to decide upon any violation of the IOC Anti-Doping Rules at the Rio OG (IOC ADR), asserting that the athlete had committed an ADRV. Following an exchange of written submissions by the parties after the conclusion of the Rio OG and an in-person hearing in Lausanne, on 8 December 2016, the Sole Arbitrator in charge of the matter issued a decision (the CAS ADD decision) in which the athlete was found to have committed an ADRV. The results obtained by the athlete in the Rio OG, including the silver medal obtained in the Men’s -52kg boxing event were disqualified.
On 29 December 2016, Misha Aloyan filed an appeal against the CAS ADD decision requesting that the disqualification of his results in the Men’s -52kg boxing event at the Rio OG be annulled. The appeal arbitration procedure was conducted by a new panel of CAS arbitrators. The parties exchanged written submissions and a hearing was held on 9 May 2017. The CAS Appeal Panel found that the IOC ADR affords no discretion and that disqualification of results is a necessary consequence of an ADRV. Accordingly, the CAS Appeal Panel dismissed the appeal and the disqualification of the results obtained by Misha Aloyan at the Rio OG stands.
