Sergeeva was ranked 12th in the women's bobsleigh, but is now disqualified from the event and "the results obtained" by her team "at the same event are disqualified with all resulting consequences," the organization said in a statement.

With a gold medal in the snowboard parallel giant slalom, Ester Ledecka of the Czech Republic has become the first woman in Winter Olympics history to win a gold medal in two different sports at the same Olympic Games.

On Saturday she emerged victorious in the final run against Germany's Selina Joerg, finishing just 0.46 seconds ahead. Joerg took silver in the event, followed by Ramona Theresia Hofmeister, also of Germany, who took bronze.
