Hamilton, 34, tested positive for blood transfusions at the 2004 Tour of Spain, weeks after winning Olympic gold.
He had given a similar positive test in Athens, but escaped sanction when the "B" sample was frozen and destroyed. .
CAS confirmed that the ban started not in April, but in September, when Hamilton accepted a provisional suspension.

Froch expecting tough encounter

Carl Froch hopes a victory over Dale Westerman on Friday will lead to European and world honours in 2006.
The Nottingham fighter, 28, defends his British and Commonwealth titles against the Australian in Bethnal Green and expects a tough encounter.
"This is not some warm-up I can afford to coast," said the unbeaten Froch.
"My fight against (Belfast's) Brian Magee (on 31 March) is a warm-up for a European title challenge and I want the winner of Joe Calzaghe-Jeff Lacy."
Despite Froch's long-term goals, he is wary of Westerman, who has lost five of his 20 fights.
"He is going to be strong because he is coming down from light heavyweight and he is going to be in the shape of life because he has had plenty of notice," said Froch.
"He really mills in there and throws a lot of shots on the inside. He is going to want to drag me into a real war, so it¿s going to be exciting to watch.
"But I am going to use all of my boxing skills to overcome him. I will be ready for anything he brings."

Kobe leads Lakers to Victory

Even a poor shooting night could not damper Kobe's Bryant's spirits' after the Lakers' victory.
Bryant was 6-for-20 from the field and was outscored by Utah guard Devon Brown, but his 23 points were enough to help the Lakers beat the Jazz 94-88 on Monday night.
Bryant, whose league-leading scoring average dropped from 35.2 to 34.9, averaged 43.4 points in January — including a franchise-record 81-point effort against Toronto and a streak of 62 consecutive free throws made.
Kobe had this to say after the game "I really don't care about the scoring title, I could care less " I don’t care about shooting the ball or anything. I mean, if I need to score 35 or 40 points, or whatever it is, I do it to win the game. If I don’t need to, then I don’t. We needed this win, and that is what we were able to do

England arrive for tour of India

England's cricketers touched down at Mumbai (Bombay) on Monday and were immediately ferried to their hotel.
Dozens of reporters and TV crews were left disappointed as captain Michael Vaughan declined interview requests.
The team left hastily through a side exit at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
But Vaughan and coach Duncan Fletcher are due to hold a news conference at 1330 GMT (7pm local time) which is expected to be well attended.
The first Test of three is in Nagpur on 1 March, while five one-day internationals will follow.
England are without main spinner Ashley Giles, and have a trio of slow bowlers (Shaun Udal, Monty Panesar and Ian Blackwell) who have played just three Tests between them.

Eagles Win Bronze Medal

Thanks to a GARBA LAWAL goal late in the game, the Super Eagles eventually beat Senegal for the second time in this competition and they win the bronze medal. This is the 5th time that the Super Eagles would be getting the bronze medal at the African cup of Nations. In my own opinion the EAGLES deserve to be in the finals but due to their lacklustre play against the Elephants of Ivory Coast in the semifinal clash they lost out for a chance at gold. The last time the Eagles won gold was at the 94 edition which held in Tunisia. Well to the Super Eagles better luck next time and to JJ OKOCHA who played his last game for Nigeria today I say well done for your service to your country. The Super Eagles have to wait for the next edition which would come up in 2008 in Ghana for a chance at the trophy which has so far eluded their grasp since 1994.
