was accused of rape
This matter is becoming quite viral on social media. Ellen Hadjic has been selected on the US fencers’ team to compete in the Tokyo Olympics despite three allegations of sexual harassment in the past, causing frustration and outrage among the US fencers’ team. The inclusion of Alain Hadjic led to six fencers, including two Olympic athletes, urging the International Olympic Committee not to allow them to represent the United States.
Hadjic denies the allegations
Ellen Hadjic has denied allegations of sexual harassment. Ellen Hadjic tells USA TODAY that’s not true. His lawyer, Michael Palma, told the New York Times that his client had never sexually assaulted him. USA Fencing did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the pink mask.
