MOYNIHAN HOPEFUL ON DRUG RULING; OLYMPICS.
The BOA and the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA) have gone to the Court of Arbitration for Sport for a ruling on whether the lifetime ban should stand.
If it is overturned it will enable cyclist David Millar and sprinter Dwain Chambers to compete for Team GB at London 2012.
The BOA were represented by leading QC Lord David Pannick and Moynihan said he expects a decision in around a month.
He said: "It was a good day, all the arguments were put really strongly. The voice of the athletes was definitely heard and we now wait and see.
"One of the questions we put is to try and get a resolution as soon as possible. My expectation is a month, we don't want it any longer as it is in the interests of the athletes that they know what the outcome will be.
"The voice of the athletes came over strong and loud so I'm cautiously optimistic."
