American figure skater slashed a South Korean competitor

Both women train under Rafael Arutunian in Los Angeles and the All That Sports agency claimed that Bell had been “bullying Lim for months,” AFP reported. The agency said it believed the act was intentional because Bell collided with Lim from behind as she was skating close to the wall of the rink, away from the rest of the skaters. Lim, competing in her first senior worlds, was treated and competed in the event, scoring a personal-best 72.91 points and placing fifth, just ahead of Bell’s 71.26. Neither woman has commented on the matter.

“Lim was slowly skating on the edge of the rink after completing her turn. Mariah Bell, who was scheduled to rehearse after Lim, suddenly kicked and stabbed Lim’s calf with her skate blades,” an All That Sports official told Yonhap News. “Mariah Bell didn’t apologize to Lim Eun-Soo after the incident and instead continued to rehearse for her routine.”

The official added, “We believe this is not a minor situation that can happen in an official rehearsal."

The International Skating Union determined Thursday that there was “no evidence” that an American figure skater had deliberately kicked a South Korean competitors during warm-ups at the ISU World Figure Skating Championships, an accusation that had triggered a request for an investigation by the sport’s global governing body.

No evidence? Lol. There’s a video on how the dishonest american with her skate blades kicked and stabbed the Asian girl. The american has also been bullying the Korean girl for several months! What more evidence do they need? How much is dishonest america paying The International Skating Union to have them cover it up?

There's video, but it's offensive content and we're caging people who share it

"“At this stage we can’t conclude Bell caused the injury on purpose,” a Korea Skating Union official said".

The months of bullying.

"This isn't the first incident involving the two skaters. Bell, 22, allegedly bullied the 16-year-old several months ago, targeting Lim in a verbal tirade."

I dont know why you seem upset by the assertion that governments and a couple of media companies should be in charge of what content you can view on the internet. It's not like that goes against the ENTIRE ODEA of the internet or anything.

So, I turned on the tv and guess what that they are showing on Swedish television on friday night? Women’s world championship figure skating. I guess that’s okay for people who wants to look at it. But if they are gonna show it on prime time I was thinking that maybe the girls could skate in bikini. It would be more interesting.
