Sochi Stray Dogs Scandal: Winter Olympics organisers criticised for plans to kill stray dogs

French sports magazine L'Equipe alleged on Saturday that judges from host Russia and the United States conspired to help each other for winning medals in Sochi Olympics. According to L’Equipe, quoting an anonymous Russian coach, the U.S. judges agreed to help Russia winning the gold medals in the pairs and team events. In return, the Russian judges would help Meryl Davis and Charlie White from the United States winning the ice dancing event.

The U.S. Figure Skating officials smashed the rumor after the news broke out. "Comments made in a L’Equipe story are categorically false," the U.S. Figure Skating said in an official statement to Chicago Tribune. "There is no 'help’ between countries. We have no further response to rumors, anonymous sources or conjecture."
