Harrassment Charges Rock Olympic Sled Team

Listen to this story
Just thirty-six days before the Winter Olympics open in Turin, Italy, the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation has suspended one of the team's top coaches. Female athletes have accused Lake Placid native Tim Nardiello of sexual harrassment. Nardiello has denied the charges and has called on the Federation to resolve the dispute quickly. As Brian Mann reports, the case has thrown into turmoil a program that accounted for a third of America's gold medals in the last Winter Olympics.
