The National

An Olympic-level coach has been accused of having affairs with his athletes. A former U.S. speed skater tells CBC News that she has come forward to Speed Skating Canada to report allegations that Canada's head coach, Michael Crowe, had sexual relationships with athletes during his time as a coach in the United States. Crowe coached American speed skaters until 2006; he was hired by Canada the next year. Crowe abruptly took a leave of absence earlier this month, pending an internal investigation by Speed Skating Canada and will remain on leave until after the Olympics. Speed Skating Canada has not confirmed what's behind the investigation
