Canoeing at the 2008 Summer Olympics – Women's slalom K-1

The women's K-1 slalom competition in canoeing at the 2008 Summer Olympics took place on August 13 and August 15, 2008 at the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park in Beijing. The K-1 event is raced by one-person kayaks through a whitewater course; the final was rescheduled to the 15th due to persistent lightning at the Park. There were three rounds of competitions: the heats, the semifinal, the final. In the heats, each canoeist completed two runs of the course; the time, in seconds, of each run was added to the number of penalty points assessed. Touching any of the 21 slalom gates resulted in a 2-second penalty for each gate touched, while skipping any of the gates resulted in a 50-second penalty; the total times for the two preliminary runs were summed to give a score for the heats. The top 15 boats advanced to the semifinals; the semifinals consisted of a single run. The field was narrowed to the top 10 scores from that run; the times from the final were added to the semifinal score to give an overall total.

2018–19 NHL suspensions and fines

The following is a list of all suspensions and fines enforced in the National Hockey League during the 2018–19 NHL season. It lists which players or coaches of what team have been punished for which offense and the amount of punishment they have received. Based on each player's average annual salary, divided by number of days in the season for non-repeat offenders and games for repeat offenders, salary will be forfeited for the term of their suspension. Players' money forfeited due to suspension or fine goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund, while money forfeited by coaches, staff or organizations as a whole go to the NHL Foundation. † - suspension covered at least one 2018 NHL preseason game‡ - suspension covered at least one 2019 postseason game # - Suspension was reduced upon further review/successful appeal. 2.^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ As players are not paid salary in the preseason or postseason, no fines are generated for games lost due to suspension during those periods. 3.^ ^ Fines generated for games lost due to suspension for off-ice conduct are calculated uniquely and irrespective of repeat offender status.

4.^ Suspension accompanied by mandatory referral to the NHL/NHLPA Program for Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health. ^ Watson's original suspension was plus the remaining 6 games of the preseason. The suspension was appealed by Watson on September 20, 2018. On October 12, 2018, NHL/NHLPA Neutral Discipline Arbitrator, Shyam Das, overruled the NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's 27 regular season game suspension down to 18 regular season games; the NHL and NHLPA agreed to use Das as a neutral discipline arbitrator on an ad hoc basis as regular arbitrator George Nicolau was unavailable. 6.^ Suspension was appealed by Wilson on October 5, 2018. On October 25, 2018, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced he had heard the appeal and was upholding the original 20 game suspension levied to Wilson; the NHLPA appealed to neutral arbitrator on behalf of Wilson, on October 26. On November 13, 2018, NHL/NHLPA Neutral Discipline Arbitrator, Shyam Das, overruled the NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's 20 regular season game suspension down to 14 regular season games.

The NHL and NHLPA agreed to use Das as a neutral discipline arbitrator on an ad hoc basis as regular arbitrator George Nicolau was unavailable. Though Wilson had missed 16 of his assessed 20 games before Das' decision was made, his suspension will stand as 14 games in the NHL records and his salary was refunded for the 2 games he missed. 7.^ Indefinite suspension accompanied by mandatory referral to the NHL/NHLPA Program for Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health - Stage 2. Suspension completed only upon being cleared for on-ice competition by the program administrators. Watson was reinstated by the NHL/NHPLA on March 2019, after 49 days and 21 games missed; as part of his reinstatement, Watson was entered into the follow-up care phase of the Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program. 8.^ Suspension was appealed by Voracek on March 11, 2019. On March 13, 2019, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced he had heard the appeal and was upholding the original 2 game suspension levied to Voracek.

As Voracek's suspension was fewer than 6 games, per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Commissioner's decision was final and binding and not subject to review, the NHLPA was not allowed to appeal to a neutral arbitrator on Voracek's behalf. 9.^ Nazem Kadri was suspended for the remainder of the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs. At the time of the suspension, the number of games for the suspension could have ranged from 3 to 5 games.
