Gilles Beyer died on Thursday January 19. The information was revealed to us on the phone by his ex-wife, Katia Krier. The figure skating coach, whom Sarah Abitbol named as the one who raped her when she was 15, died at the age of 66. Following the revelations of the skater at the end of January 2020, in the book “Un si long silence” and in “l’Obs”, the director of the Flying French had been dismissed from his club, and a judicial inquiry had been opened. Sarah had not filed a complaint, the facts concerning her being prescribed. Gilles Beyer, however, publicly apologized, acknowledging only “ inappropriate gestures “. In the process, other skaters had gone to the polleurs. And January 2021, the ex-coach was indicted for “sexual assault” and “sexual harassment”, before being placed under judicial supervision.

He leaves before being judged, I would have liked there to be a trial… (the silence) It’s crazy, this death comes just a week before my show, where I talk about this trauma, the liberation of my speech, my rebirth, and my return to the ice… God has decided so. »
