In recent years, there have been constant scandals of sexual assault in the world sports. In addition to the sexual assault of athletes (including many world champions and Olympic champions) by former team doctor Nassar of the United States gymnastics team that shocked the world, the sports worlds of Europe, America, South Korea and Japan have successively The sexual assault scandal broke out, but most of the time, these satanic coaches targeted female athletes, but now, the black hands of sexual assault are reaching out to male athletes. According to Canadian media reports, Richard Gautier, a world-class figure skating coach, was accused of sexually assaulting underage male athletes and has been arrested by the police.
According to foreign media reports, there were three accusations against Gautier, concentrated in the period from 1981 to 1985, including three accusations of sexual assault, gross indecency, and violence. The victim was a man codenamed "PD". He studied skating under Gautier's guidance. He was only in his early 10s and was one of his earliest students. On Wednesday, the police issued an arrest warrant against Gautier, and if all goes well, he will appear in court for trial in a few days. The police have also begun to check whether there are other victims.
Gautier is a top coach in the field of double skating. He has worked with Serra/Peltier, the gold medalist in double skating at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, to help the latter reach a career high and win the 2001 world championship. In addition, he also brought out the 2015 and 2016 world champion Duhamel/Radford, who won the bronze medal in double skating at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
高铁（Gautier）是双人滑冰领域的顶尖教练。他曾与2002年盐湖城冬季奥运会双打滑金牌得主Serra / Peltier合作，以帮助后者取得事业新高并赢得2001年世界冠军。此外，他还带出了2015年和2016年世界冠军杜哈默尔/拉德福德，后者在2018年平昌冬季奥运会上获得了双人滑铜牌。

It will closely monitor the progress of the incident in the future. At the same time, it was emphasized that all accusations of power and sexual assault will be taken seriously, and the association will protect its members, especially athletes.
