Krasnaya Polyana, Russia (SportsNetwork.com) - Both the Canadian and Slovenian Olympic committees filed applications with the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Saturday protesting the final of the men's ski cross.
Thursday's event was swept by the French, led by Jean Frederic Chapuis' gold medal. Arnaud Bovolenta won silver and Jonathan Midol took bronze, an order decided after Canada's Brady Leman fell on the final turn in the big final.
However, both Olympic committees, along with the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association have asked for the disqualification of the winning skiers, alleging that the French support staff changed the shaping of its racers lower leg suits for an illegal aerodynamic effect.
The applications request a correction of the final rankings.
While Leman came in fourth place, Russia's Egor Korotkov won the small final to place fifth ahead of Slovenia's Filip Flisar, who finished sixth.
