Dank appeal set to be thrown out

Stephen Dank has failed to provide paperwork explaining his no show at this week’s anti-doping appeals hearing.

Dank’s appeals hearing was adjourned after he failed to appear at the tribunal, citing a family emergency.

He claimed a family member had been admitted to hospital with a life threatening condition and was therefore unable to appear.

Dank had been given until November 26 to prove to the Appeal’s Board there was indeed a family emergency.

Hi failure to do so means his appeal against his lifetime ban from working in any sport in Australia or overseas is likely to be thrown out.

  1. What an absolute loser this flog is. All fluff and no substance “I will get Jobe his medal back”. What a joke! What a loser! Anything associated with that club is just pathetic

  2. can we find a loophole to deport him back to the rock he crawled out from underneath of, so sick of his lies and constant inability to say and do the right thing. No one has any interest in what he has got to say anymore
