(ANSA) - Rome, September 11 - The Italian Olympic Committee
(CONI)'s doping tribunal on Tuesday banned former
national cycling team captain Filippo Pozzato for three months
"for having frequented" banned-for-life doping doctor Michele
Ferrari.
Pozzato was also fined 10,000 euros ($12,775).
In June, when the case emerged, the CONI prosecutor asked
for a year ban.
But the 30-year-old former Tirreno-Adriatico and
Milan-Sanremo winner was suspended and missed last month's
London Olympics.
International Olympic Committee rules bar athletes who have
been reported to doping tribunals from taking part in events.
Pozzato will now be eligible to return to competition on
September 18 because of the time he has already served.
Ferrara-based Dr Ferrari's most famous client is seven-time
Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, who was recently stripped
of his titles by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after
he declined to contest its case against him.
The International Cycling Union (UCI), cycling's governing
body, has yet to pronounce on the Armstrong case.
