BERLIN---A cyclist who received UV blood
treatment has been cleared of doping by the
Court of Arbitration for Sport because the
procedures took place before being banned
by the World Anti-Doping Agency on Jan-
uary 1, 2011.
CAS ruled that such treatments, where an
athlete s blood is treated with ultraviolet light
and then re-injected, did not constitute doping
at the time if it did not lead to increased oxy-
gen levels, which wasn t proven in the case,
Germany s national anti-doping agency said
The unnamed cyclist, who received the
treatment from Dr Andreas Franke at a train-
ing center run by the German Olympic Sports
Confederation in Erfurt, was cleared of
wrongdoing by Germany s sports arbitration
court last November. NADA then brought
the case to CAS for clarification.
"Now we have a lot more than an individual
decision. There is now a clear view of things,"
NADA board member Lars Mortsiefer told
the dpa news agency. The German anti-dop-
ing agency said on its website it was con-
sidering whether to proceed with more cases
against athletes treated by Franke.
Public broadcaster ARD previously said it
had a list of 28 athletes implicated in the
scandal, including German cyclist Marcel
Kittel, former Olympic speedskating cham-
pion Claudia Pechstein, former 800-meter
Olympic champion Nils Schumann, and
Jamaican long jumper James Beckford.
NADA brought two cases before the Ger-
man sports arbitration court, where both
cyclist Jakob Steigmiller and speedskater
Judith Hesse were cleared of wrongdoing.
VANCOUVER---The Badminton World Fed-
eration has launched an investigation after
a fight broke out between two former part-
ners at the Canada Open doubles final on
During a change of ends, Bodin Issara
lunged at Thailand compatriot Maneepong
Jongjit, chasing him onto a neighboring court
before punching him several times.
Issara was dragged away and held down
by coaches and tournament staff, while his
partner, Thai Pakkawat Vilailak, escorted a
now shirtless Jongjit off court.
Issara, who needed two stitches, claims
Jongjit hit him with a badminton racket. The
pair had already received a warning from
the referee following a verbal exchange.
Jongit and his partner Nipitphon Puang-
puapech, also of Thailand, were awarded
the victory after Issara was shown a black
"The events surrounding the conclusion
of this match will be thoroughly investigated
by the BWF," the federation said in a state-
ment on Monday. "The world-governing
body has procedures in place to deal with
such situations and this matter will be
referred to the Disciplinary Committee."
Jongjit and Issara were among the top-
ranked badminton pairings and reached the
quarterfinals at the 2012 Olympics. They
split in January, when Issara retired to take
care of his ailing mother, but was soon com-
peting again with another partner. (AP)

JOHANNESBURG --- Ernie Els was South
Africa s highest-earning sportsman in 2012,
making 179 million rand (US$18.2 million)
last year, according to the country s Sunday
The four-time major champion earned
US$14.7 million from endorsements and com-
mercial work like golf course design, and the
remaining US$3.5 million in tournament win-
nings, boosted by his victory at the British
Open, according to the rich list compiled by
The top four on the South African sports
list were golfers. Louis Oosthuizen, the 2010
British Open champion, made US$9.8 million
in 2012, Retief Goosen US$6 million and
Charl Schwartzel US$5.9 million.
However, they are some way off Tiger
Woods, whom Forbes magazine rated in June
as global sport s highest-earning athlete during
the preceding 12 months with US$78.1 mil-
The South African newspaper said its list
was compiled using interviews with leading
agents as well as figures from the US PGA
and other sports bodies.
While the Sunday Times ranking under-
lined the earning power of golf, it also showed
the financial pull of cricket s Indian Premier
League and European and Japanese rugby
clubs for South African sports stars.
Cricketer Jacques Kallis makes US$305,000
a year playing for his country and US$1 million
a year from the IPL s Kolkata Knight Riders.
Kallis was No 6 on the list behind English
Premier League footballer Steven Pienaar,
who makes an estimated US$5 million a year.
Seam bowler Chris Morris is the starkest
example of how the IPL is the "land of milk
and silly money," according to the paper.
Morris makes US$40,000 a season from his
Johannesburg-based Lions team, but
US$625,000 from the IPL s Chennai Super
Kings following this year s draft.
Rugby players are also profiting from deals
with foreign clubs.
Springboks wing JP Pietersen rocketed into
the top 10 after signing a US$1.1 million per
season contract with Japan s Panasonic Wild
That deal was over five times more than
what he makes a year in South Africa off his
provincial and national contracts combined,
the newspaper said. (AP)
