British IOC member sent home after altercation

A British member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Adam Pengilly, was told to leave the Pyeongchang winter Games immediately after an incident involving a security officer, the IOC said on Thursday.

"The guard claimed Pengilly refused to comply with his instructions, dragged him about 30 meters and knocked him down", the Korea Times reports.

The organizers called for measures against Adam Pengilly, a member of the IOC Athletes' Commission, who injured a security guard at a parking lot near the Main Press Centre in PyeongChang.

"I tried to walk past a security guard when he told me to go the other way".

Trump had cited the CHX deal twice during the election campaign as an example of how jobs and wealth were leaving the US. But the takeover still came under fire from USA lawmakers, who anxious about the national security implications.

Pengilly was the only International Olympic Committee member to vote against his organisation's decision in 2016 not to issue a blanket ban on Russians for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics over the extensive doping scandal.

Adams said both cases were being investigated by the IOC's chief ethics and compliance officer Paquerette Girard Zappelli, who handled the expulsion of Pengilly.

The incident was caught on CCTV and pressed as to whether there was any physical contact between Pengilly and the staff member, Adams said: "My understanding is that there was some contact, yes".

"We presume that because he admits it, there is no presumption of innocence", Adams said.

According to the portal Inside the Games, about this he asked the leadership of the IOC. "The guard added that Pengilly threatened him, telling him he would never work in Korea anymore if he tells his supervisor about the incident". "I'm also sorry for swearing and I hope you did not misunderstand what I was saying".

Confusion has resulted, however, after IOC Presidential spokesperson Mark Adams justified their response on four occasions partly on the grounds that a "volunteer" was involved, before Pyeongchang 2018 spokesperson confirmed that it actually concerned an employed security guard.

"We expect members not to behave in this way and it was poor behavior".

"Adam Pengilly admitted that he'd made some errors and apologised and I think he has actually left the country now".
