The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has confirmed that Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter has filed an appeal against the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) decision to disqualify him from the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games following an anti-doping rule violation. In a media release, CAS outlines that the arbitration procedure is now in progress and advised that the parties will exchange written submissions after which a panel of three arbitrators will be constituted. This panel will then issue directives regarding the holding of a hearing into the matter and then make a decision after its deliberations. “The Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter has filed an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the International Olympic Committee (IOC) regarding the decision issued by the IOC Disciplinary panel on 25 January 2017 in which he was found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. A consequence of such finding was the disqualification of Nesta Carter and the other members of the Jamaican team from the Men’s 4x100m relay at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games in which they had achieved the gold medal,” read the CAS statement. “Nesta Carter seeks to set aside the challenged decision in order for the Jamaican team to be reinstated as gold medallists.” Carter along with members of Jamaica’s gold medal winning 4x100m relay team have been disqualified from the Games and have since returned their medals to the IOC via the Jamaica Olympic Association.

The occupants all inhaled smoke but were not hurt, Boyd said. Her father, who suffers from congestive heart failure and diabetes, sat in an ambulance until paramedics were sure he was all right. Her youngest son, age 10, was upset, Boyd said. “He was just crying and holding on to his doggie,” she said. The fire damage seemed confined to the bedroom, but smoke damage was heavy throughout the house and the heat was intense enough to melt plastic objects in rooms that didn’t catch fire. Among the damaged furniture was a new pool table and a flat-screen television bought for Christmas. “Everything’s gone,” Boyd said, tears coming to her eyes. “I don’t have a lot of money. I have children. I have my daddy. I have my foster kids. All my dad’s medicine is gone.” Boyd rented three rooms at Motel 6 on Thursday night and was visiting relief agencies Friday looking for help. Boyd’s father has lived in the house for 16 years and she moved in after his health worsened, she said. They rent the house, but were arranging a loan to buy and had expected to sign documents next week. They have no insurance on their belongings, she said. Anyone interested in helping the family can contact Boyd through her sister Dorene Goldman at (661) 209-4034. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PALMDALE – Nearly a dozen people were left homeless after a late-night house fire blamed on a portable electric heater under a bed in an elderly man’s bedroom. Samuel Goldman, 73, escaped unharmed only because he had awakened to get a glass of water before the fire started, his daughters said. “God saved him,” daughter Amy Boyd said Friday morning, standing outside the fire-blackened Spanish-style house. “Everybody’s safe, by the grace of God. I lost everything, though.” Firefighters said flames were coming from the roof when they pulled up just after 10 p.m. Thursday. It took them 25 minutes to knock down the fire, and one firefighter burned his hand battling the blaze. He was treated at a hospital and sent home.

Boyd said she was asleep when her children awakened her and told her their grandfather’s room was on fire. Her sister Shannon Reid and friend Michael Davis grabbed garden hoses and fought the flames until firefighters arrived. “It was just flaming up,” Davis said. All the occupants got out safely: Boyd, her sister, their father, Davis, Boyd’s three children and two teens she has taken in, and an invalid man and a woman she cares for. They had to carry the invalid man out. The family dog also got out. “The neighbors came to my help. They came out running in slippers, socks,” she said.
Mark Hughes has paid tribute to Everton manager David Moyes, who this week celebrates 10 years in charge at Goodison Park.Moyes is regarded as one of the top managers in the country and Hughes says the Scot can be proud of his achievements.“David’s done a remarkable job. Managing a big club like that comes with big expectations and he’s managed that very well,” said the Welshman.“He possibly hasn’t got the resources that other clubs have but he still manages what he has very, very well.“It’s difficult to be at a club that long – and being at the same club a long time can bring it’s own problems, because people will have heard the same voice over and over again.“It takes a skilled manager to keep making players aware of what’s required of them and he’s done that really well.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
