Former athletics coach Alberto Salazar has to serve his four-year suspension in full for doping violations.
This was announced by the Cas International Sports Court, where the American and Jeffrey Brown appealed against the ban.
Brown was the doctor in charge of the Nike Oregon Project (NOP), which has since been discontinued, and he is also banned for four years.
Alazar, who trained Great Britain's running superstar Mo Farah and was in charge of the NOP, was suspended in 2019.
The misconduct that the anti-doping authority USADA had compiled against Salazar is about the years 2010 to 2014. The native Cuban is said to have manipulated doping samples and traded with prohibited substances such as testosterone.
In July, Salazar was banned from the American Safe Sport Center for life after athletes from the Oregon Project accused him of sexual and emotional misconduct.
The former marathon runner admitted "callous or insensitive" comments but denied that women athletes suffered abuse or discrimination under his supervision.
