A former pairs champion took his own life Friday, just one day after he was suspended by U.S. Figure Skating.

In December, SafeSport restricted his participation in the sport before the interim suspension was announced. He was temporarily suspended from participating in any capacity, in any activity or competition authorized or organized by USFS or the U.S. Olympic Committee, USA Today reported.

Liberal logic. In order to avoid suicides in the future no more player bans.
Over on the Twitter threads they are saying he was linked to pedophilia.

Thanks for the information.

Nothing says "not guilty" like immediate suicide. /s
O M G....LOVE THIS
That was straight out funny, the way they used to be before
I see Tonya Harding on TV fairly regularly. She managed to turn her misfortune into a career. I don’t think she’s done bad for herself at all.
Its pretty close.
Sexual predator could not face being exposed for his crimes. Didn’t realize he still will face judgement beyond anything he could have imagined.
Reruns of worlds dumbest....
One of the funniest shows ever
I lived blocks away from Tonya Harding. Lets just say she had issues. I retired from the Military and it’s a pretty good bet she would have been kicked out. Just sayin....
Really? Because if memory serves, the local media was all too happy to report on the police responding to her trailer in Vancouver, WA for various domestic disturbances.
