Fujimori’s defense at CAS was to cite “potentially contaminated rice balls” he ate the day before, the court said.
At an earlier doping tribunal, held by swimming governing body FINA, Fujimori declined to blame a supplement or cold medication which could have resulted in a six-month ban.
“Mr. Fujimori has maintained his integrity, a clear conscience and demonstrated himself to be an individual of high character and ethical standards,” the FINA panel said, regretting its “lack of express authority within the rules to reduce Mr. Fujimori’s sanction in this case.”
