The Anti-Doping Commission of FIS has decided to disqualify Stefan Luitz because of unauthorized inhalation of bottled oxygen. He will lose the GS victory he won in Beaver Creek. 

His lawyer told the German press earlier today that Luitz wants to challenge the decision.

And I guess that officially ends the "first time winners" hype of this Winter season? :p

Is there any point in challenging the decision?

 

I mean, he's guilty, isn't he?

Challenges often aren't about guilty or not :p

Luitz and the German Ski Association argue that they did not know that the ban on inhalation of bottled oxygen is still in the FIS rules. WADA has allowed the use of oxygen since 2018. However, FIS has not adjusted its 2016 regulations to those of WADA . FIS, on the other hand, emphasizes that Luitz's offense is not considered a doping case, but a rule violation. Thus, the use of oxygen by the World Anti-Doping Agency is not prohibited, but "certain scientific and medical equipment" in competition is forbidden, according to FIS's rules.

Ignorantia iuris nocet - I guess they will laugh at this "we didn't know the rules" excuse.
