Russian women's hockey player tests positive for virus day after playing Canada
South Korean Olympic team accuses short track speed skating judges of bias
Another Russian women's hockey player has tested positive for the coronavirus after playing against Canada.
Russian Olympic Committee team coach Evgeny Bobariko tells state news agency RIA Novosti that Polina Bolgareva tested positive.
The forward played against Canada in a game Monday which was delayed because of virus concerns on both teams before the Russians and Canadians agreed to start the game in masks. The Canadians kept their masks on and won 6-1.
Bobariko says the team found out about the positive test after arriving back at the Olympic village following the game.
Russia has eight players unavailable in Beijing because of the virus and another player was left in Moscow after a positive test. Bobariko says "I don't know how it's happening."

South Korea accuses short track judges of bias
South Korea's Olympic team leader has suggested bias by judges kept the country's short-track skaters out of the men's 1,000-metre final.
The South Korean team called a news conference Tuesday, one day after judges disqualified its skaters from each semifinal in Beijing. They included world record holder Hwang Dae-heon, who won his semifinal, then was disqualified for causing contact with a rival.
South Korean team official Yoon Hong-geun says "sport needs to guarantee fair play in order for the entire human race to gain hopes, dreams and courage."
In the rough-and-tumble of Olympic short-track racing, South Korea is a traditional power. South Korean skaters won three of eight gold medals at home in the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang.
Yoon apologized to the Korean public for Monday's results asking "for your forgiveness that I haven't fulfilled the dreams, hopes and wishes of 50 million Korean people."

32 athletes in isolation
Beijing Olympic organizers say there are 32 athletes in isolation facilities after they tested positive for the coronavirus and they're spending an average of seven days in isolation.
The disclosure came after complaints by athletes and teams about inedible food, dirty rooms and a lack of training equipment and internet access. Organizers have acknowledged that isolation is already a difficult situation for athletes and say they are working to quickly address any problems.
McCloskey noted that people who were infected can continue testing positive intermittently for a long time, even if they're not contagious. But he said previously infected people might also be testing positive because they were re-infected, and are able to spread the virus.
