After the biggest scandal at the Winter Olympics for 30 years, the IOC took the unprecedented step on Friday of awarding gold medals to two Canadian figure skaters beaten in competition by improper judging. A French judge at the center of allegations of vote-rigging was suspended for misconduct by the International Skating Union (ISU) after four days of controversy which threatened to turn the sporting action at the Salt Lake City Games into a sideshow. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) finally lost patience with the skating world body and put pressure on it to overturn Monday's result in which a Russian duo had been given the gold medal. It agreed instead to award another gold medal to Canadians Jamie Sale and David Pelletier.
