Curling’s disgraced Kim family quit sport, but don’t

Dec 27,2018
Former Korean Curling Federation vice-president Kim Kyung-doo said on Dec. 4 that he and his family would quit curling due to accusations they abused players, but it was reported on Wednesday they haven’t left the curling federation.

While Kim Kyung-doo has left, his daughter Kim Min-jung is still registered as a coach, his son-in-law Jang Ban-seok is registered as a trainer and the couple’s son is registered as a player.

As the three haven’t submitted their resignation letters, they are reported to have received their monthly pay from the North Gyeongsang sports association.
