Cross-country skier Therese Johaug has a court date in June for a doping case that could force her to miss the 2018 Olympics

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Cross-country skier Therese Johaug has a court date in June for a doping case that could force her to miss the 2018 Olympics.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says it will hear the International Ski Federation's appeal to extend Johaug's 13-month ban on June 6. The ban is due to expire in November.

CAS typically gives verdicts within several weeks.

Johaug, a former Olympic and world champion from Norway, could not defend her overall World Cup title last season after testing positive for clostebol.

A Norwegian Olympic tribunal judged she was not at significant fault. It accepted that she used a team-approved lotion to treat her sunburned lips during training.

However, FIS argued that a 13-month ban is "on the low end of the range of reasonable sanctions."
