2 Olympic medalists banned from skating for 3 years

Two Olympic medal-winning short track skaters involved in a race-rigging scandal are in danger of having their careers ended after the local sport-governing body imposed a three-year ban on each of them.

The Korea Skating Union (KSU) suspended Lee Jung-su and Kwak Yoon-gy from all competitions until April 2013, Yonhap News Agency reported Wednesday citing a source familiar with the case.

Their punishment, reportedly notified to the athletes the previous day, is heavier than recommended by a special joint committee convened last month.
