Settlement ends Russian doping case at Pyeongchang Olympics
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — One of the four doping cases at the Pyeongchang Olympics has been closed in an agreement between bobsled’s governing body and Russian driver Nadezhda Sergeeva.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport says it accepted a settlement which ended the case with an eight-month ban for Sergeeva. It expires on Oct. 22.
All parties agreed a contaminated product was to blame for her positive test for trimetazidine in South Korea in February.
Sergeeva was disqualified from her 12th-place finish in the two-woman bobsled event.
