(AP) Austrian freestyle skier Daniela Bauer has lost her legal bid for selection to the Sochi Olympics.


The Court of Arbitration for Sport says it dismissed Bauer's appeal against a refusal by the Austrian Olympic committee and ski federation to nominate her for the halfpipe event.


It was the first judgment given by the court in Sochi.


The CAS panel says the Austrian sports bodies had "legitimate sports performance" reasons for not selecting Bauer.


Still, the court criticized them for a "lack of published qualification criteria (which) has misled the athlete."
