Embattled US speedskating coaches resign
KEARNS, Utah (AP) - US Speedskating's embattled short-track head coach and his assistant resigned from the organisation on Thursday, effective immediately.
Head coach Jae Su Chun and assistant Jun Hyung Cho both accepted suspensions from US Speedskating through February 2014, including the Sochi Olympics to be held that month.
Chun has been accused by a dozen national team members of physical, emotional and verbal abuse, and of ordering speedskater Simon Cho to sabotage the skates of a Canadian rival.
But investigators commissioned by US Speedskating said they did not find evidence that Chun engaged in such patterns of abuse, or if Cho's claim that Chun ordered the skate tampering.
