In a speech at a sports congress in Denmark, Bach reiterated his position that the International Olympic Committee must remain "politically neutral" but also consider the political implications in choosing host cities.

He says "choosing a host city does not mean that the IOC...

Four-time champion Sebastian Vettel enters the new Formula One season in the unusual position of being the outsider. This time, the Ferrari driver is doing the chasing — behind the Mercedes pair of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

Vettel used to be the man to beat, winning the title four years in a row with Red Bull. But Mercedes ended that dominance in crushing style last year and Vettel — who seemed isolated and despondent throughout the season — made the switch to...

BOSTON (AP) — Three people who survived the Boston Marathon bombing told jurors how they lost limbs or watched loved ones die after the 2013 attack.

At the federal death penalty trial of bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Thursday, Roseann Sdoia described how she saw two flashes of white light and then saw her foot dangling from her mangled leg.
