CONI sets next Di Luca hearing

The Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) announced on its website Wednesday that Giro d'Italia winner Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas) would next appear before them in an anti-doping hearing on Monday, September 3.

Efforts thus far to bring together key parties for a hearing failed this week. CONI cited the "particular complexity" of the case as a reason for more hearings and mentioned the receipt of documents from a court in Pescara that pertain to the case against Di Luca, who has maintained his innocence.
