China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS - AGEN­CIES

United States skater Si­mon Cho has been banned for two years by the In­ter­na­tional Skat­ing Union af­ter con­fess­ing he tam­pered with a Cana­dian ri­val’s skates at the 2011 world team short­track cham­pi­onships in Poland. The sus­pen­sion, which was an­nounced by the ISU in Lau­sanne on Mon­day, started retroac­tively on Oct 5, 2012 and runs un­til Oct 4 next year, which means Cho will be un­able to com­pete in the 2014 Win­ter Olympics in Sochi, Rus­sia.
