The CAS had initially announced that the final decision would be communicated on 26 March 2019, i.e. 6 months prior to the World Championships in Doha. Since the hearing held in Lausanne, Switzerland, from 18 to 22 February 2019, the parties have filed additional submissions and materials and agreed to postpone the issuance of the CAS award until the end of April 2019.
