Gold for Sale and Pelletier

Last Updated Fri, 15 Feb 2002 13:40:14

SALT LAKE CITY - Canadian figure skaters Jamie Salé and David Pelletier are gold medalists after all.

 

The International Olympic Committee and International Skating Union announced on Friday they had reached a deal on Friday to award a second set of gold medals to the Canadians.

 

Ottavio Cinquanta, head of the ISU, said a meeting was held late Thursday to discuss the controversy surrounding the controversial competition on Monday .

 

He said Marie-Reine Le Gougne, the French judge at the centre of the controversy, had been suspended.

 

Her results were thrown out, creating a tie between the Canadians and the Russians.

 

International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge announced the Canadians will be awarded gold medals.

SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - Canadian figure skaters Jamie Sale and David Pelletier will be awarded a gold medal in the pairs, International Olympic Committee (news - web sites) president Jacques Rogge said on Friday.

 

``The gold medal will be awarded to the Canadian pair,'' Rogge told a news conference.

 

The Canadian duo finished second to Russians Yelena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze last Monday, although most neutral observers thought the result should have been reversed

 

French judge Marie-Reine Le Gougne has been suspended from the Winter Olympics (news - web sites) for misconduct following her decision to vote for the Russian duo.

 

``We have suspended with immediate effect the judge of figure skating Mrs. Marie-Reine Le Gougne,'' International Skating Union (news - web sites) president Ottavio Cinquanta told a news conference on Friday.

to bad they are still getting ripped off. you can't have 2 sets of people getting the gold. the point isn't the gold medal, it's that they were the best. there is only one first place. i would still be pissed if i were the canadians. it may be better, but all they did is undo a little of what got fucked up in the first place.
