Coach and captain banned for life following death of triathlete Choi


Coach Kim Kyu-bong and team captain Jang Yun-jung have been handed life bans by the Korea Triathlon Federation (KTF) after team-mate Choi Suk-hyeon took her own life.

Choi reportedly endured years of physical and verbal abuse from the coaching staff at Gyeongju City Hall’s semi-professional team.

The 22-year-old’s death was reported last week and prompted a KTF investigation.
