The ISA had been in a long-running dispute with the International Canoe Federation (ICF) to run a sport which has elements of surfing and kayaking, with participants standing on a board propelling themselves forward with a paddle.AdvertisementAdvertisement

CAS said on Thursday that it had"dismissed ISA’s request to be recognised as the sole governing body of Stand-Up Paddleboard at the world level".But it said that"that the ISA shall be the International Federation (IF) governing and administrating the sport of Stand-Up Paddleboard at Olympic level."

Both federations claimed the ruling as a victory. ISA president Fernando Aguerre said it heralded an exciting future for the sport."This includes our long-term ambition and plan to see the sport included in the Olympic Programme under the leadership and authority of the ISA," he said.
