Sella: World Anti-Doping Agency drops appeal

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) dropped its appeal against the suspension length of Italian Emanuele Sella, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. Last month, it appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) the one-year suspension issued by the Italian anti-doping tribunal in December.

Sella tested positive for blood booster Erythropoietin in an International Cycling Union (UCI) out-of-competition test on July 23. The Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) called for a one-year ban after its investigation.
