American skater banned over fight


The Internatio­nal Skating Union has banned twotime Olympian Mitchell Whitmore of the United States for one year after a late-night fight with a Netherland­s coach outside a team hotel. The ISU disciplina­ry panel found the 26-year-old speedskate­r guilty of misconduct in December during a World Cup meet in Germany. Dutch team coach Stefano Donagrandi alleged Whitmore assaulted him after he complained about noise.
