Olympic ski champion suspended for doping

Austria's national anti-doping agency has provisionally suspended 2002 Olympic cross-country ski champion Christian Hoffmann for his alleged involvement in blood doping.
NADA said Thursday that Hoffmann has been banned from all competitions with immediate effect until a hearing by the agency's disciplinary committee has taken place.
NADA did not reveal a date for the hearing, but Hoffmann's attorney Hans-Moritz Pott said it would take place on Jan. 29.
That would mean that Hoffmann, who won gold in the 30-kilometer race at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, won't be able to qualify for the Olympics in Vancouver.
