South Korea’s Olympic champion short track skater Lim Hyo-jun has been banned for one year for pulling down a teammate’s pants in front of female competitors.
The incident took place during a training session in June, when Lim yanked down the pants of a younger skater in the presence of female skaters who were also training in the center.
The episode attracted the attention of the Korean Sport & Olympic Committee which initially wanted to punish all 14 speed skaters who witnessed Lim’s actions.
However, the penalty was reversed after sports officials inspected CCTV footage from the center.
