The Korean Triathlon Federation held an emergency meeting at the Seoul Olympic Parktel in Bangi-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 24th. Park Suk-won, who attended the meeting voluntarily resigned from his position as president of the organization.
Park voluntarily stepped down from his position to take responsibility for failing to help Choi Suk-Hyeon when she was alive.
Although Choi filed complaints back in February and Park Suk-Won received the reports on February 12, he ignored it. “When I was first briefed on Choi Suk-Hyeon’s case, I didn’t know it was that serious,” Park said. According to Park, he would like to help Choi’s grieving family after his resignation if he can.
According to the Korean Triathlon Federation, Park Suk-Won will still act as the president of the organization until the election of a new federation president.
