Korea tries to root out violence in local sports

Korea yesterday laid out plans to eliminate violence in local sports, hoping to better protect rights of victims and discipline abusive coaches.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said in order to protect abused athletes at all levels that the Center of Athletes’ Rights and Interests, an organization under the Korean Olympic Committee that currently provides counseling for amateur athletes, will also help professional athletes.

Under the ministry’s plan, the center will also strengthen abused athletes’ right to privacy and confidentiality when they report their cases. Yonhap
