The president of the French Ice Sports Federation gave in to pressure. In the midst of a scandal of sexual violence in skating, Didier Gailhaguet, finally announced his resignation on Saturday February 8. “The situation had become untenable in recent days with the Minister of Sports who had urged him to resign“, reports journalist Nathalie Perez from the French Ice Sports Federation in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. He is suspected of having covered the actions of Gilles Beyer, a trainer accused of rape and sexual assault by several women.
This decision is “the only solution so that the situation can finally be released. After more than twenty years of unequal reign at the head of the French Ice Sports Federation, Didier Gailhaguet is no longer the president of this federation“, concludes Nathalie Perez.
