Sochi loses right to host bobsleigh & skeleton World Championships

The Russian city of Sochi will not host next year's bobsleigh and skeleton World Championships, reports BBC.

The International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation said it would not be "prudent" to hold the championships in Russia, a country which has been accused of state-sponsored doping.

A report on 9 December claimed more than 1,000 Russians benefited from a doping cover-up between 2011 and 2015.

A new host city will be named in the forthcoming days.
