LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -- The International Skating Union will hold a hearing April 29-30 on the figure skating scandal that shook the Winter Olympics.
The ISU said Thursday it was unable to schedule the
hearing earlier because of a busy competition calendar, including next week's World Championships in Nagano, Japan.
The investigation centers on the conduct of French judge Marie-Reine Le Gougne, suspended by the ISU after voting for the Russians in the pairs' competition in Salt Lake City.
The decision came after Le Gougne told ISU president Ottavio Cinquanta she had been "submitted to a certain pressure" from the French federation to vote for Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze.
