The Court of Arbitration for Sport has come a long way since the idea of establishing it was first mentioned by Juan Antonio Samaranch, the former IOC President, who foresaw the need for a specialised body to resolve sporting disputes outside the normal court system. His aim was for CAS to become the supreme court of world sport; an aim which, this book demonstrates, has been largely fulfilled. It has, in the words of the Swiss Federal Tribunal in a landmark judgement of 27 May, 2003, 'built up the trust of the sporting world [and is] … now widely recognised … [as] … one of the principal mainstays of organised sport.' This 'jubilee' book - after twenty years of operations - charts the history, including significant milestones, and achievements of the CAS.
