Nesta Carter files appeal against doping ruling

Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter has filed an appeal of his recent doping confirmation with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the president of his track club confirmed on Thursday.

Bruce James, president of the MVP track club, said the 31-year-old sprinter will push his efforts to CAS to overturn the January 25 sanction imposed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) after a retest of his sample from the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
