The TAS dismisses the appeal of the British Wiltshire in the Gómez Noya case

The triathlete was suspended six months for his actions on Javier Gómez Noya in the European

The Court of Sports Arbitration (TAS) dismissed the appeal filed by the British triathlete Harry Wiltshire against the six-month suspension for his unsportsmanlike behavior with the Spanish Javier Gómez Noya in the past Europeans, held in Pontevedra.

Wiltshire was uncomfortable throughout the men's event to the Galician, who came to grab during the swimming section, for which he was sanctioned for dangerous and unsportsmanlike behavior by the International Union (ITU).

The Briton appealed against this sanction in the TAS on August 10, but the court, after reviewing the evidence and videos and listening to the testimony of the person involved and the race judges, found that Wiltshire violated the competition rules with reference "To repeated unsportsmanlike conduct" and noted that the suspension imposed was not disproportionate.
