KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - The Badminton World Federation has reversed a one-year ban handed to Olympic gold medallist Lee Yon-dae for failing to comply with doping requirements.
Lee and fellow South Korean player Kim Ki-jung are eligible to resume competition immediately after the Malaysia-based BWF found that the "whereabouts failures" were due to the management of the program by the national badminton federation.
Neither player failed a doping test, but had been required to provide whereabouts information for the BWF to conduct out-of-competition testing.
TORONTO - A night that began with the unfurling of their Atlantic Division banner ended with the Toronto Raptors setting a franchise record for victories.
But they barely paused to soak up the good feelings Wednesday after beating the lowly Milwaukee Bucks 110-100 to notch win No. 48.
"We've got a bigger goal," said Kyle Lowry.
UNCASVILLE, Conn. - Canadian Natalie Achonwa was selected as the No. 9 pick by the Indiana Fever in the WNBA draft Monday.
Achonwa, of Guelph, Ont., tore her left ACL during Notre Dame's win over Baylor to put the Fighting Irish into the Final Four at March Madness.
Edmonton's Michelle Plouffe of the University of Utah went 19th to the Seattle Storm.
Chiney Ogwumike was the No. 1 pick by the Connecticut Sun.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - General manager David Poile hopes he sent the strongest message possible by making the first coaching change in Nashville's history: missing the playoffs is not acceptable for the Predators.
QUEBEC CITY, Que. - Wednesday's lightweight bout between Canadian Sam (Hands of Stone) Stout and K.J. Noons, on the undercard of the UFC's Ultimate Fighter Nations card, has been switched to welterweight.
The UFC said Monday that it had been approached by the fighters to request the change in weight class, which was subsequently approved by the Quebec athletic commission, the Regie des alcools, des courses et des jeux.
Lightweights can fight at up to 156 pounds in non-title bouts. It is 171 pounds for welterweights.
CALGARY - The Calgary Flames did not make the playoffs for a fifth straight year. The difference between this spring and the previous four is the Flames did not underachieve this time around.
When since-deposed general manager Jay Feaster brought himself to say the word "rebuild" last summer, it confirmed following the departure of Jarome Iginla, Miikka Kiprusoff and Jay Bouwmeester that the Flames were going to be a lunchbucket squad until new stars emerged or were acquired.
Jean-Paul Bedard clearly remembers the ear-piercing blasts, the ominous plumes of smoke and the total pandemonium that erupted moments after two bombs went off at last year's Boston Marathon.
The enormity of the situation only hit home days later though, when the 47-year-old was back in Toronto looking at a video his wife had taken of him crossing the finish line — there, in a short clip, appeared to be one of the backpacks authorities believe contained explosives which ripped through the crowd.
CALGARY - Calgary Flames interim general manager Brian Burke defended his head coach Monday and said Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella "oughta keep his mouth shut."
Burke, also Calgary's president of hockey operations, countered Tortorella's post-game comments after Sunday's game in Vancouver, where the Canucks won the regular-season finale 5-1.
