Longtime US ski and snowboard coach Peter Foley has been relieved of his position amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
While no official line of dismissal was stated, he was put on a leave of absence not long after the allegations began to arise.
“As of March 2020, 2022, Peter Foley is no longer employed by U.S. Ski and Snowboard,” the governing body told CNN. “Mr. Foley has been on a leave of absence since February 21, 2022.”
“I see him doing weird grooming stuff with the next generation of athletes,” Chythlook-Sifsof told ESPN. “I’ve been focused on how, over the long term, am I going to do something about Foley and change coaching with the hope that maybe things will be different.”
Chythlook-Sifsof’s bravery to step forward and share her story prompted multiple other women to share their own stories.
The alleged misconduct includes sexual assault, unwanted kissing and touching, and Foley coercing athletes into take nude photos.
Allegations have since been submitted to SafeSport, which is a watchdog organisation that polices issued related to sexual abuse in U.S. amateur sports, and will be investigated.
