Mariah Bell, an Amercian figure skater, has been cleared of trying to injure South Korean rival Lim Eun-soo during a warm-up at the World Championships in Japan.
"Based on the evidence at hand at this point in time, which includes a video, there is no evidence that Ms. Bell intended any harm to Ms. Lim," the sport's governing body said in a statement.
"The ISU met with delegates from both USA and Korea and urged both parties to find an amicable solution.
"The ISU maintains that this remains the appropriate approach."
The both train under coach Rafael Arutyunyan, will meet again in the free skate this weekend when they will be in the same warm-up group.
