SEOUL, March 14 (Yonhap) — Two South Korean mogul skiers who competed at the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games were banned for life after they were found to have assaulted and sexually harassed fellow athletes during a World Cup event in Japan earlier this month, the national ski association said Wednesday.

The Korea Ski Association (KSA) said its discipline committee decided to punish Choi Jae-woo and Kim Ji-hyon with lifetime bans for their behavior during the International Ski Federation (FIS) Freestyle Ski World Cup in Tazawako, Japan.

According to the KSA, the two skiers had a drinking party and asked female skiers to join them. But when their teammates refused to do so, they apparently assaulted and sexually harassed them.

At the FIS World Cup in Japan, Kim and Choi finished 19th and 22th respectively on March 3, but they didn’t start their runs next day.

Choi, 24, was one of South Korea’s medal hopefuls at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics after posting three fourth-place finishes at FIS World Cups this season. But he failed to complete his race in the second final round and tied for 10th place in the men’s moguls at PyeongChang 2018.

Kim, 23, earned an Olympic spot at the last minute and finished 27th in the moguls event.

Meanwhile, the female skiers who claimed they were sexually harassed by Choi and Kim reportedly asked the police to investigate the incident.

    人们的敌类不是任何国家的人,而是欺世盗名搞鬼的社灰魔鬼。 The only way to go back to your lives in the real world is having killed social evils and shut down evils-controled ‘computers’ belongs to previous human.

    Those things are fake forged in your brains feel similar as realities in real world by ‘computers now controled by evils’. They may cause ‘same’ feelings, but they do not have ‘same’ effects.
    If you are in the real world ,you will know how those things are generated. But ,you are in a fake world, you can not understand those.
    The only way to go back to your lives in the real world is having killed social evils and shut down evils-controled ‘computers’ belongs to previous human mankind.
    The so-called ‘universe’ and ‘earth as a planet’ are fake. Social evil’s intention of doing these criminals is to make people like you do harming criminals each other like evils have done . And rewards of criminals you do are fake things and artifact feelings and a bad fake life.
    Social evils can do these criminals does not mean that they have big talents. On the contrary, the ‘computers’ used by social evils doing these criminals were stolen by social evil from the previous human-being that killed by social evil.
    In the real world, there is only one truth that is the human hierarchy order. However,in fake ‘worlds’, there are a lot of so-called principles and theories, but those principles are generated by ‘evil-controled computers’. And also your fake ‘life ,abilities, every contradiction and conflict ‘ were falsely set and fixed when you were born in fake worlds by social evils used invention that they had stolen from previous human.
