France’s top competitors have marked a letter on the side of a boss olympic skater who has blamed her previous mentor for explicitly ambushing her as an adolescent.
In a life account discharged a week ago, Sarah Abitbol charges that Gilles Beyer first assaulted her when she was matured 15.
Investigators in France have now opened an examination.
In the letter – marked by in excess of 50 contenders – the competitors said they were “sickened… yet, not astonished”.
“We can never again be quiet! The time has come to act altogether and understand that ending the quiet likewise implies serving sport,” the letter peruses. It was composed by individuals from the Commission of High-Level Athletes (CAHN), some portion of France’s Olympic Committee (CNOSF).
Ms Abitbol’s mentor Mr Beyer has confessed to “personal” and “wrong” relations with her, and said he was “truly grieved”.

As a major aspect of their examination, investigators said they would attempt to build up on the off chance that any other individual had been mishandled.
Three different skaters have blamed Mr Beyer and two additional mentors – who are all from the official French Ice-Skating Federation (FFSG) – of manhandling and assaulting them when they were minors.
Jean-Roland Racle denies the allegations and Michel Lotz has not remarked.
