Kim Dong-Sung, a two-time Olympic medal winner for South Korea, will be banned from attending the sport's March 11-13 national championships in Weston, Wis., or any other sanctioned events, according to U.S. Speedskating President Brad Goskowicz. He could face additional punitive action ranging from long-term suspension to expulsion pending the outcome of a hearing, Goskowicz said.

U.S. Speedskating began investigating Kim last Thursday, days after The Washington Post reported that six skaters said Kim abused them or they saw Kim inflict corporal punishment on other skaters. A seventh later came forward.

The skaters, who requested anonymity for fear of retribution, told The Post that Kim had used hockey sticks, skate-blade guards, hammers and hand timers to hit them on the buttocks, stomach and hands, or he kicked them. They said the abuse usually occurred in the locker room or during dry-land training, out of the view of their parents.
