Olympic skicross racer banned in doping rule case

BERN, Switzerland (AP) Two-time Olympic skicross racer Sanna Luedi of Switzerland has been banned from competing for one year after breaking anti-doping rules.

Switzerland's Olympic committee says Luedi did not file details of where she would be available for doping controls three times within 18 months.

Swiss Olympic says her ban expires Jan. 10, 2016.

Luedi competed for Switzerland at the 2014 Sochi Games and 2010 Vancouver Games, placing 13th and 35th, respectively. The 29-year-old skier has three career World Cup wins.

She missed much of last season after sustaining serious left knee injuries last January at a World Cup event in Val Thorens, France.
