SOCHI, February 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The Federation of Ski Sport of Germany might file an appeal to the International Ski Federation (FIS), challenging a decision made by the jury commission that has left the standings in men's team sprint ski race unchanged, press attache of the German Federation of Ski Sport told Itar-Tass.
The Finnish skiers, Iivo Niskanen and Sami Jauhojaervi, were acknowledged winners in the race.
But, representatives of the German national team claimed that shortly before the finish line Sami Jauhojaervi bumped into German skier Tim Tscharnke who hit the ground and lost the chance to fight for the Olympic award.
The press attache said that they were considering a possibility of appealing the decision of the jury commission. It costs 48 euros to file the appeal, he added.
The press attache said that the chances to settle the dispute in favor of the German team were small. The Finnish team will possibly not be disqualified, the press attache said. But, he knows no incidents when after such a violation the winner team could keep the gold medal, the press attache said.
If FIS satisfies the German appeal the gold medal in men's team cross country ski race will go to the Russian skiers, Maxim Vylegzhanin and Nikita Kryukov, who were second to cross the finish line and won bronze.
