Jamaican Bobsled Coach Quits, Shaun White Apologizes
And she’s taking her sled with her. German gold medalist Sandra Kiriasis has resigned as coach of the first Jamaican Olympic women’s bobsled team after she said a role change barred her from contact with her athletes. She claims she owns the team’s sled and wants reimbursement, though the Jamaican Bobsled Federation disagrees — possibly necessitating the team’s withdrawal before next week’s initial heats. Meanwhile, gold medalist snowboarder Shaun White apologized for referring to his 2017 sexual harassment settlement as “gossip,” while saying he’s got “big plans” for future competition.
