Korean swimming body chief to resign amid corruption scandal


The head of South Korea’s top swimming governing body will submit his resignation this month following its executives’ corruption scandals, a national swimming official said Thursday.

According to the Korea Swimming Federation official, who asked not to be named, KSF President Lee Ki-heung said at a Tuesday meeting with executives from regional swimming federations that he will resign from his post.

The 61-year-old also pushed to hold a board meeting and general assembly in Jeju on March 18 to discuss the retirement of current executives at the KSF, including himself, and initiate an “innovation committee” to tackle the corruption scandal.
