South Korea human rights body to investigate abuse in sports
South Korea’s human rights commission plans to interview possibly thousands of athletes about a culture of abuse in sports after a wave of female athletes came forward to say they had been raped or assaulted by their coaches.
It began with two-time Olympic short-track speed skating champion Shim Suk-Hee accusing her former coach of repeatedly raping her. A group said there were at least five more female skaters saying they were sexually abused by their male coaches. Encouraged by Shim, female athletes in judo, taekwondo, soccer and wrestling have also accused their male coaches of sexual harassment or assault since.
South Korean competitive sports in recent weeks have been hit by a growing #MeToo movement, which highlights deep-rooted problems over a brutal training culture and highly hierarchical relationships between coaches and athletes.
Experts say abusive treatment of female athletes has long been a problem in South Korea’s elite sports, which are predominantly run by men.
In 2012 Japan’s judo also had a few scandals.
