France: Figure skating chief Gailhaguet addresses rape and sexual abuse allegations

Former figure skater and head of the French Federation of Ice Sports Didier Gailhaguet addressed rape and sexual abuse allegations against him during a press conference in Paris, on Wednesday. «I have been asked to resign over events that happened 30 years ago, when I was absent from the FFSG [French Federation of Ice Sports]. Events that came to my knowledge a week and a half ago,» said... Еще Gailhaguet. «To be in a position to resign, I would have needed to commit a mistake. However I do not believe that I committed any.» «Stigmatising a federation president, [who is] certainly quite flawed but honest and hard-working, is disgusting,» he added. Sarah Abitbol, former French champion and bronze medallist, accused Gailhaguet of having raped her several times in her recently published autobiography. Other skaters reportedly also came forward with sexual abuse accusations against the former figure skater. According to media, prosecutors opened an investigation into the claims.
