TGS Baltic has successfully represented the Anti-Doping Bureau of Latvia in the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

According to TGS Baltic, the Anti-Doping Bureau of Latvia is “a national anti-doping organization, internationally known as LAT-NADO, which in accordance with Sports Law, inter alia, performs also doping control, conducts examination and investigation of infringements of the anti-doping regulations, ensures control of execution of the decisions taken by the competent anti-doping bodies, [and] implements educational and research measures in the field of anti-doping.”

According to TGS Baltic, “in 2018, a Latvian powerlifting athlete was disqualified by ... the Latvian Powerlifting Federation’s Disciplinary Commission for a period of four years. The athlete was [found] guilty of infringing the provisions of the World Anti-Doping Code. On June 17, 2020, the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled that it lacks jurisdiction to hear the appeal filed by the athlete.”

TGS Baltic’s team was led by Partner Agnese Hartpenga.
