South Korea protests over Kim’s silver

The South Korean Olympic Committee has protested the results of the women’s figure skating competition, although the sport’s international governing body said Saturday it has not yet received the letter. International Skating Union rules require such protests be filed immediately after the event.

The Koreans believe the judging was biased and cost Kim Yu-na a gold medal. The 2010 champion finished with silver, behind Russian teenager Adelina Sotnikova.

Much of the uproar over the women’s free skate centers on what many perceived as a lack of artistry in Sotnikova’s program. Yet her marks were comparable or better than those for the highly artistic Kim. Her technical marks were significantly better.

Etc.

• The Court of Arbitration for Sport said Canada and Slovenia have asked that France’s freestyle skicross podium sweep at the Olympics be thrown out because of suit adjustments made to improve aerodynamics.

• Four-time Olympic medalist Evgeni Plushenko will have back surgery on March 2. Plushenko, 31, withdrew from the men’s short program and the Gala Exhibition because of back pain.

• A Ukrainian cross-country skier failed a doping test, her country’s Olympic committee said. It is the third positive result of the Sochi Games. Marina Lisogor tested positive for trimetazidine, a stimulant. She raced twice but won no medals.
