Probe into death of Korean triathlete who claimed abuse
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Triathlon’s governing body has joined an investigation into the death of a South Korean competitor who was reportedly subjected to years of physical and mental abuse. World Triathlon says it is deeply saddened and shocked to hear of the death of Choi Suk-hyeon. Choi was 22. She filed criminal complaints against her coach, doctor and teammates in February and gave the same report in April to the national triathlon federation and the Korean Olympic committee. Her family says she was frustrated by the lack of progress.
