Ban on competition

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A competition ban is a sports penalty that prohibits an athlete from participating in competitions . This ban is usually imposed by the national sports associations on the basis of their competition regulations . In the case of national team members (e.g. World Championships or Olympic Games ), the respective world association, in the last instance the International Sports Court (CAS) in Lausanne, is responsible.

Possible reasons for a ban are doping offenses , unsporting behavior , disregard of certain conditions (e.g. when changing clubs ) or other serious violations of the competition rules . The duration of the ban is determined according to the gravity of the offense. In the case of repeated doping violations, such a ban can last for several years up to a lifetime.

A competition suspension is usually noted in the competition ID or this is withdrawn for the duration of the suspension.
