… U.S. speed skater Simon Cho called Olivier Jean and apologized for tampering with his skates at last year’s short track world team championships.
On Friday, Cho held a media conference in his lawyer’s Salt Lake City office and explained why he deliberately sabotaged the skates of his Canadian rival. As he had told U.S. speed skating officials, Cho felt pressured to do so by U.S. coach Jae Su Chun, who has been accused by a dozen team members of “unchecked” verbal, psychological and physical abuse. …
Chun has continued to deny the complaints even during an independent investigation requested by U.S. Speedskating.
There’s never a dull moment in short track speed skating.
