- Fayaaz Caan receives backdated three-year ban until June 2024
- Caan guided Robbie Grabarz to silver medal at 2012 Olympics
A top British Olympic high jump coach has been banned for three years for misconduct after accepting that he mocked a para-athlete as “Limp-foot Christie”, described a team doctor as a “fuckwit” and repeatedly used industrial language towards his athletes.
Fayaaz “Fuzz” Caan, who guided Robbie Grabarz to a silver medal at the London 2012 Games, also accepted a charge that he told his athletes “a story about a former high jumper who was caught having sex in a lift when the door opened”. However, he denied that it was inappropriate.
