In the field of athletics, a common dialogue of coaches, administrators, athletes, and the media surrounds player safety and concussions. Although the majority of concussions are not associated with a loss of consciousness, the long term affects of these sometimes minor traumatic brain injuries can be devastating. Concussions can occur in many sports, with the NCAA rating Women’s Hockey as the collegiate sport with the highest rate of reported concussions.
(Reuters) - Former world number one Vijay Singh sued the PGA Tour for "reckless administration and implementation" of its anti-doping programme on Wednesday, a week after golf's premier tour dropped a doping case against the Fijian. Three-times major winner Singh was initially found by the PGA Tour to have breached the sport's doping rules after using a spray, which contains a banned substance, to treat an injury but he was later cleared of any wrongdoing after winning an appeal.
