(AP Photo/Mark Humphrey, file)MOSCOW — With a pair of gold medals at stake, a Russian court has issued a ruling that directly challenges the authority of the International Olympic Committee and the Court of Arbitration for Sport.The Moscow City Court ruled Wednesday that bobsledder Alexander Zubkov, who carried the Russian flag at the opening ceremony of the 2014 Sochi Games, should still be considered an Olympic champion despite having been stripped of his medals because of doping.

The International Bobsled and Skeleton Federation didn’t respond to a request to comment.ADVERTISEMENT CAS, however, is the only valid arbiter for sports disputes at the games, according to the Olympic Charter. In rare instances, Switzerland’s supreme court can weigh in on matters of procedure.“The CAS decision in this case is enforceable since there was no appeal filed with the Swiss Federal Tribunal within the period stipulated,” the IOC told The Associated Press in an email on Thursday. “The IOC will soon request the medals to be returned.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe law firm representing Zubkov said the Moscow court found the CAS ruling violated Zubkov’s “constitutional rights” by placing too much of a burden on him to disprove the allegations against him.Zubkov won the two-man and four-man bobsled events at the Sochi Olympics but he was disqualified by the IOC last year. The verdict was later upheld by CAS. In the two-man event, Beat Hefti and Alex Baumann of Switzerland are due to inherit the gold medal from Zubkov’s team, while a Latvian squad is in line for the four-man gold medals.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View commentslast_img read more
