Vanessa-Mae attends appeal of 4-year ban

LAUSANNE, Switzerland - Pop violinist Vanessa-Mae has appeared at sport’s highest court to appeal her four-year ban for helping to fix the Sochi Olympic qualifying races in Alpine skiing.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says Vanessa-Mae attended the all-day hearing to challenge a ban imposed by the International Ski Federation. A court ruling is expected in at least several weeks.

The musician appealed to annul the ban and overturn a FIS decision to wipe four qualifying races in Slovenia from the record. A FIS tribunal judged that Vanessa Mae colluded in rigging races and results to improve her racer status ahead of the qualifying deadline last January.
