ATHENS (AP) - A member of Denmark's sailing team was arrested on charges he struck and killed a British pedestrian while speeding in his car on the way to see his country's handball team play.
The sailor, Niklas Holm, hit the man, identified as Errol Strachan, on a suburban Athens street Sunday night, police said. Holm was released by a court after being charged with manslaughter and speeding.
 

The Danish Olympic Committee said the 23-year-old sailor would be allowed to compete.

"I feel no guilt," Holm was quoted as saying on Danish TV2's Web site, adding that he was only driving about 31 mph when, in one of the designated Olympic lanes, he struck Strachan, who worked for a catering company in Athens.

Holm competes in the star class, which starts competition on Saturday. He was Denmark's sailor of the year in 2002.

"The police have informed the embassy," said Hans Grunnet, Denmark's ambassador to Greece. "The Olympic committee is handling it."

Two others in the car, a crewmate and a coach weren't charged.
