Doping and not being allowed to compete for 18 months[change | change source]
FIS, or International Ski Federation, made the doping case go to CAS, or Court of Arbitration for Sport; FIS did this, because the organization thinks that the punishment is not long enough. Her case was heard on 6 June 2017.
The decision (from CAS) about punishment, was: suspension for 18 months.
