 Canadian world champion skater arrested for sexual abuse


There were three charges against Gautier, covering the period 1981-1985, including three charges of sexual assault, serious indecency and violence. The victim was a male code named PD. At that time, he was learning skating under Gautiers guidance. He was only in his early ten years old and was one of his earliest students.

Last Wednesday, police issued an arrest warrant for Gautier, who will appear in court in a few days if all goes well. Police have also begun to verify the presence of other victims.

Gautier, a top coach in the field of double skating, was selected into the figure skating Hall of fame while celebrating his 55th birthday at an official ceremony in Ottawa in January 2017.

Gautier had a long-term cooperation with celA / Peltier, a gold medalist in double skating at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, helping him to reach a career high and win the 2001 World Championship. However, celA / petier parted ways with him shortly before the Winter Olympics.

In recent years, his main achievement is to coach the 2015 and 2016 world champion Duhamel / Radford, but he also broke up with the pair before the Winter Olympics, and the latter won the bronze medal in double skating in the 2018 Pingchang Winter Olympics. As a well-known figure skating coach, Gautiers involvement in the sex abuse scandal is shocking. The Canadian Skating Association announced this morning that it had been informed of the criminal charges against Gautier and suspended his coaching work. In the future, it will pay close attention to the progress of the incident. At the same time, it stressed that the accusations of authority and sexual assault will be taken seriously and the association will protect its members, especially athletes. After Duhamel / Radford retired in 2018, Gautier is currently in charge of directing Canadas new double skating No.1, Moore TAVIS / marinaro. The pair have risen rapidly in the last two seasons. They won the silver medal in the four continents championship in 2019 and the bronze medal in 2020. They are one of the main competitors of the Chinese team.
