LONDON (GBR): The British Olympic Association (BOA) is to take its row over cash with London 2012 to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) writes Insidethegames. The unprecedented decision to take the matter to sport’s highest court is because the BOA fear that even if the International Olympic Committee (IOC) do find in their favour in the dispute over the Joint Marketing Agreement (JMA) between them and London 2012 it could still be challenged. A CAS decision could take several months but would be final and binding on the question whether the BOA is entitled to a share of the surplus from the Olympic Games alone or the Games and the Paralympic Games combined.
