KSOC will investigate sexual assault allegations

Oct 12,2018
Korea’s top national sports body said Thursday that it will investigate sexual harassment allegations against a former national women’s volleyball coach.

The Korean Sport and Olympic Committee (KSOC) said that its audit department will look into claims that the ex-coach sexually harassed a national team staffer last month at Jincheon National Training Center in Jincheon County, North Chungcheong. The volleyball team was preparing for the 2018 world championships at the time.

After learning about the incident, the Korea Volleyball Association replaced the coach, who has denied the allegations against him.
