Malta Independent - - Sport -

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.
