IOC to Continue Probe Into Alleged Illegal London Ticket Sales

July 21 (Bloomberg) -- The International Olympic Committee will continue its investigation into alleged illegal sale of tickets for the London games published by the Sunday Times last month.

“The Ethics Commission has received evidence from the newspaper and noted that each individual case merits a detailed analysis involving the hearing of all parties, particularly with regard to the existence of deliberate intent to breach the various rules that govern the sale of tickets for the Olympic Games,” the IOC said in a statement today.

Separately, U.S. runner Crystal Cox has had the gold medal she won in the 4x400-meter relay at the 2004 Athens Olympics removed after being disqualified, the IOC has ruled.

“It is now within the remit of the International Association of Athletics Federations to interpret its rules as to whether the disqualification of the athlete would have any effect on the results of the U.S. relay team,” the statement, published today following a meeting of the IOC’s executive board in London, said.
