  • Rogers welcomes lifting of UCI doping ban

    Australia's Michael Rogers celebrates after winning the Japan Cup cycling road race in Tochigi prefecture on October 20, 2013Australian cyclist Michael Rogers has welcomed the lifting of a doping ban for a banned stimulant, saying it has ended a very difficult time for him. The International Cycling Union (UCI) on Wednesday lifted its doping ban on Rogers, who last year tested positive for clenbuterol in a urine sample at the Japan Cup. Rogers said he had always been adamant that the positive reading was due to the consumption of contaminated meat during his stay in China for the Tour of Beijing ahead of the Japan Cup. "I have received the extremely pleasing news that the UCI has decided that no period of ineligibility is to be imposed against me following my inadvertent adverse analytical finding for clenbuterol in October 2013," Rogers said in a statement issued on social media late Wednesday.

  • Venezuela's Maduro promises importers overdue hard currency

    Member of the national police clash with demonstrators during a protest against the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas on April 20, 2014Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro promised to pay back billions of dollars in government debt to disgruntled importers, after widespread shortages of basic goods helped fuel months of deadly anti-government protests.
