US Fencer Made To Olympics Despite Sexual Assault Allegations -- But Relax, There's A Plan

"Ten days after fencer Alen Hadzic secured a spot as an alternate on the US Olympic team, a group of women took their concerns about him straight to the top. The six women fencers, including two Olympic athletes, wrote to the Olympic committee that Hadzic should not be allowed to represent the US because he was under investigation for at least three accusations of sexual misconduct.

Though last month SafeSport had suspended Hadzic from the international competition, an arbitration process that ultimately permitted him to participate in the Summer Games. Acknowledging the severity of the allegations facing Hadzic, USA Fencing, the athletic federation in charge of selecting the country’s Olympic competitors, created a “safety plan” to keep him away from women and out of the Olympic Village.
“We are pissed off that this is even a thing we had to deal with,” an Olympic fencer who filed a complaint against Hadzic alleging predatory behavior told BuzzFeed News from Tokyo. “He’s been protected again and again.”


Well, at least they are taking the allegations seriously enough to keep him away from women...because nothing conveys innocence like being forced to quarantine yourself away from women...seems like if you have to do all of that, why have the guy on the team?

On the bright side....Lee Kiefer made history this weekend for the US as a fencer by winning the first gold medal in that sport.....but she's a girl so I am not for sure if it counts or not...

It counts that she won and the guy should be left in Japan when the team comes home.

Accusations and allegations are not proof or a court conviction. So yeah they should have been able to go.

Until they are found guilty in a court of law then they are innocent.

Not in the NEW USA, it is guilty, until given a clear by the left. Look at Kavanaugh, he is still considered guilty. Biden has gotten the clear by the left and is no longer guilty of what women accused him of.

What a joke, he’s being “investigated” by a group called SafeSport, not any actual police or real authorities.

The most I could find was one complaint from a chick that went to his apartment and he grabbed her ass cheek. Wow, really? ‍

If there are any real allegations then it should be reported to the police. If not, they have no right to suspend him or put restrictions on him.

Maybe they're keeping him away from Kiefer for his own safety. (-:
