An Italian gay-rights activist said she was detained by police at the Olympics after being stopped while carrying a rainbow flag that read in Russian: ''Gay is OK.'' Police on Monday denied this happened. Vladimir Luxuria, a former Communist lawmaker in the Italian parliament who has become a prominent transgender rights crusader and television personality, told The Associated Press she was held for several hours Sunday before she was released. A duty officer at the central police station in Sochi told The Associated Press they have never had an Italian national in custody. Luxuria's agent, Fabio Saccani, told the AP from Italy his client had been held for five to six hours in a station room, and she was unable to understand what was happening because only Russian was spoken.

Thick fog lingered over the mountains at the Sochi Olympics on Monday, forcing the postponement of a biathlon race and snowboard event until Tuesday. The biathlon race, which had already been pushed back from Sunday evening, will now be held Tuesday at 2:30 p.m., organizers said. ''Well, I am going to sleep again,'' double Olympic champion Martin Fourcade tweeted in French after the race was postponed. Women's race director Atle Skaardal said the fog could still affect that event if it remains.

French investigators have ruled out any criminal wrongdoing in the debilitating ski accident of Formula One great Michael Schumacher, a state prosecutor said Monday. Albertville prosecutor Patrick Quincy said ''no infraction by anyone has been turned up'' and the probe has been closed, his office said in a statement - responding to questions about whether the Meribel ski station in the French Alps or an equipment maker might have had some role in Schumacher's injury. Schumacher has been treated at Grenoble University Hospital in southeastern France since then. Quincy's office said the rock that caused Schumacher to fall was 10.4 meters (34 feet) away from another rock upon which he hit his head - and each were more than 4 meters away from the edge of the red-level piste that he was on.

East gets by Durant, Griffin to win All-Star game (Yahoo Sports)

NEW ORLEANS, LA - FEBRUARY 16: Kyrie Irving #2 of the Eastern Conference All-Stars drives against Stephen Curry #30 of the Western Conference All-Stars during the 2014 NBA All-Star Game as part of the 2014 All-Star Weekend at Smoothie King Center on February 15, 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

From the first play to the final minute, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving made it clear how the East felt about this All-Star game. Irving had 31 points and 14 assists and was voted the MVP, Carmelo Anthony made a record eight 3-pointers and scored 30 points, and the East stopped a three-game losing streak with a 163-155 victory over the West on Sunday night in the highest-scoring All-Star game ever. Fed up with losing the midseason game and tired of the East being picked on for its mediocrity this season, James had a steal and dunk on the first possession, long before defense usually shows up in the All-Star game. ''They beat us the last three years and they had a lot of bragging rights, so to be able to come through being down 18 was huge.'' Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin each finished with 38 points, four shy of Wilt Chamberlain's All-Star game record, for the West.

Creighton apparently has Villanova's number. Doug McDermott matched his season high with 39 points and passed Larry Bird for 13th on the Division I career scoring chart, and the 18th-ranked Bluejays won 101-80 on Sunday to move into first place in the Big East, a half-game ahead of the No. 6 Wildcats. Their 21-point victory came less than a month after they hammered Villanova by 28 in Philadelphia on the strength of a record 3-point shooting performance. ''I didn't think we could play much better than we did at Villanova,'' Creighton coach Greg McDermott said.

With the famed No. 3 on his car and memories of the late Dale Earnhardt fresh in his mind, Austin Dillon took the fabled number out of hibernation and straight to the top at Daytona. Dillon reawakened the days of The Intimidator and proved he can handle the spotlight thrust on his ride in the 3, winning the pole Sunday for the season-opening Daytona 500. He took the top spot with a lap at 196.019 mph in NASCAR's season opener in a car Richard Childress has refused to field at NASCAR's top level since Earnhardt's fatal accident on the last lap of the 2001 race. But with his 23-year-old grandson ready to move to the Sprint Cup Series, Childress allowed Dillon to use the number widely associated with the seven-time champion.
