Lazutina Owes Bente Skari Money

FasterSkierDecember 13, 2002

Norwegian newspaper Adressavisen has calculated that Larissa Lazutina owes Bente Skari approximately $3000 in prize money, although Bente is not counting on ever seeing any of it. At a World Cup race in December 2001, Lazutina tested positive for NESP—a blood enhancer similar to the more-common EPO. The positive result was not known until later in the season, allowing Lazutina to race until the end of the Olympics. Another positive test in conjunction with the 30 kilometer final event lead to her initial suspension and loss of the gold medal she won in that event.
