Carter filed the appeal with CAS seeking to overturn the International Olympic Committee's January 25 decision in which he was found to have broken anti-doping rules during the Beijing Games, CAS said in a statement on Friday.

Carter was found in re-tests of his sample to have taken the banned stimulant methylhexaneamine, meaning the entire Jamaican relay team had to return their gold medals.
