A scandal erupted at the World Figure Skating Championships in Montpellier. In the event’s official live stream, two commentators defamed an Olympic champion. The World Union reacts immediately.

DThe World Skating Federation has split from two commentators at the Figure Skating World Championships in Montpellier with immediate effect following a verbal omission. As the association announced via Twitter, 74-year-old Simon Reed and his colleague Nicky Slater (63) disrespected former Canadian pair skater Megan Duhamel. The statements were picked up by a switched-on microphone. The ISU was “shocked by the language of the two commentators,” the association said.

Also, the association apologized to the 36-year-old team Olympic champion since 2018 “for the unfair and unacceptable behavior of the two commentators. ISU strongly condemns statements of a discriminatory or biased nature.” An internal investigation will be launched. Two commentators will never be cast for an ISU figure skating event again.

Two commentators described Canadian Duhamel, who also won bronze with Eric Radford in German couple Aljona Savchenko and Bruno Massot’s 2018 Olympic victory, as “bitch from Canada” (“bitch from Canada”) and then laughed contemptuously – official World Cup in Live Stream. even The World Association did not accept the excuse that the microphone was still on by mistake.

“It was taken out of context”

One of the two, Simon Reed, immediately apologized to Durham. Later publicly also on Twitter. There he wrote: “I spoke to Megan Duhamel. Megan understood that my joke outside the mic was referring to the most thoughtless thing Nikki could say. Megan admitted that, she knows I’m a big fan of hers and it’s a real shame that it was taken out of context. We look forward to meeting for beer. ,

“Canadian bitch.” ,Laughter,

Duhamel responded on Twitter without rancor. “I’m personally sorry to Simon Reed and the ISU President (Dutchman Jan Dijkma, editor) Received and I don’t think a public apology is needed at this time. I appreciate and respect the apology,” wrote the two-time world champion, who also criticized two commenters on Twitter ahead of the competition.
