According to the Canadian Press on Sunday, the three French men's ski cross racers who swept the podium at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi will be allowed to keep their medals.

On Sunday, the Court of Arbitration of Sport (better known as CAS) determined that the French ski cross pants worn by gold medalist Jean Frederic Chapuis, silver medalist Arnaud Bovolenta and bronze medalist Jonathan Midol did not violate any rules.

The Canadian Olympic Committee and Slovenian Olympic Committee asked the Court of Arbitraton of Sport to review the pants of the French ski cross racers, believing they were altered to improve aerodynamics.

If one of the French ski cross racers violated the rules, Canadian Brady Leman of Calgary would have won an Olympic medal. Leman finished in fourth place. If it was determined that all three French ski cross racers broke the rules, Slovenian Filip Flisar would have won a medal. Flisar finished in sixth place.
