Ass`t Coach Pressured Speed Skater to Miss Event

Short-track speed skater Lee Jung-su is presumed to have been pressured by an assistant coach to drop out of the world championships last month.

... Lee Jung-su and Kim Sung-il said in the investigation that they wrote down what Chun dictated in a letter explaining the reason for their absence at the world championships under “an oppressive atmosphere.”

“Chun wasn’t the only person who put the pressure on me. Senior (union) officials must have been involved,” Lee Jung-su said.

The content of the “agreement” made at the team trials held in April last year for the Winter Olympics is considered shocking. Shortly before the 3,000-meter super finals, the last event of the team trials, certain coaches and athletes are alleged to have agreed to help each other make the national team, and then take turns winning medals at international meets. If this is confirmed, this could mean that the results of the team trials were manipulated.
