The appeal to the Olympic Council of Ireland’s Appeal Tribunal by Irish professional road cyclist Matt Brammeier against the decision of Cycling Ireland not to select him for the Olympic Road Race on July 28th has been turned down.
The OCI’s Appeal Tribunal met Mr. Brammeier’s legal representatives on Saturday last, July 7th in Howth and heard the lengthy appeal submission. The OCI Appeal Tribunal was chaired by Susan Ahern (executive member) along with William O’Brien (first Vice-President) and Dermot Sherlock (Hon. Secretary General) .
Based on the findings of the Tribunal the appeal was not upheld.
Nothing in the decision prevents recourse by Mr. Brammeier to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
