Pechstein suing ISU, German association

  • Print

BERLIN -- A civil case for damages being brought by former Olympic speedskating champion Claudia Pechstein following a doping ban was described by the International Skating Union on Tuesday as based on "artificial ground."

Pechstein is suing the ISU and Germany's speedskating association for 3.5 million euros damages for loss of income through lost advertising revenue, court costs and medical records, plus another 400,000 euros for personal suffering.

Pechstein, who won nine medals at four Olympics, served a two-year ban from 2009 to 2011 for abnormal blood levels, despite never having failed a doping test.

 

Canucks unbeaten

XALAPA, Mexico -- Canada's women's basketball team took another step closer in its quest for a world championship berth.

Kendel Ross scored 16 points to lead the undefeated Canadians to an 89-45 rout of Venezuela at the FIBA Americas Championship on Tuesday, assuring themselves a spot in the semifinals.

But after three lopsided victories, world No. 9 Canada knows it faces a much tougher test Wednesday in Cuba for top spot in Group A.

 

NYC to get all-stars

NEW YORK -- The 2015 NBA All-Star weekend will be split between two New York arenas, with Madison Square Garden to host the game, two people with knowledge of the plans said Tuesday.

Barclays Center in Brooklyn will host the Saturday skills events, the people confirmed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the plans were to be announced at a press conference Wednesday.

Commissioner David Stern, Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will attend the press conference, along with officials from Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center.
