SOCHI, Russia (AP) The Court of Arbitration for Sport has dismissed an appeal by Canada and Slovenia that tried to disqualify France after it swept the men's skicross race at the Olympics.

The Canadians and Slovenes had accused the French team of changing the shape of the athletes' ski pants for better aerodynamics. Rules prohibit uniform alterations for such purposes.

The sweep by Jean Frederic Chapuis, Arnaud Bovolenta and Jonathan Midol was France's first gold, silver and bronze in the same event at any Winter Olympics.

The top sports court's decision came on Sunday, the final day of the Sochi Olympics.
