Tae Kwan Do Superstars Accused of Sexual Misconduct
Gold medals can’t get you out of everything. But two-time Olympic champion Steven Lopez was reportedly allowed to compete in the Rio Games despite an ongoing multiyear investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against him and his coach and brother Jean. Four women said they were sexually assaulted by the Lopez brothers, who have denied all charges. The investigation, which follows similar scandals in gymnastics and swimming, could spur more measures aimed at preventing sexual abuse. Steven Lopez will compete at the world championships in South Korea this month.
