MELBOURNE: Thirty-four Australian Football League (AFL) players were on Tuesday slapped with lengthy bans for doping offences in a case officials called “the most devastating self-inflicted injury by a sporting club in Australian history.” The Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld a World Anti-Doping Agency appeal against an AFL tribunal ruling last March that cleared past and present players from the Melbourne-based Essendon club of using the banned substance thymosin beta-4. The tribunal followed an in-depth probe by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) that examined the club’s player supplements and sports science programme which sent shockwaves through the game.
