Tony Hansen appeals to CAS to keep Olympic bronze

Tony Hansen appeals to CAS to keep Olympic bronze

Norwegian rider Tony Andre Hansen has made his case to sport's highest court to keep his Olympic bronze medal in team jumping despite his horse failing a doping test.
Hansen gave evidence to the Court of Arbitration for Sport at a two-day appeal hearing that ended Tuesday. He is challenging an International Equestrian Federation ruling to disqualify him from last year's Beijing Games.
The court has not set a timetable for a verdict.
Hansen's horse, Camiro, tested positive for a banned pain relieving medication.
Their performance helped Norway take bronze behind the United States and Canada. Without Hansen's scores, his three Norway teammates would drop out of the medal position.
Switzerland is in line for bronze.
