"He was later dismissed as head coach of the Shigakkan University wrestling team"...

And why isn't Tanioka Kuniko the University President apologizing for publicly defending her beloved Sakae and for slagging off Icho?

"We will return to a philosophy of putting athletes first and promise to give utmost support to all wrestlers, including Icho," 

Yeah, and how about having anyone who commits harassment and/or assault jailed? I guess that would be a bit too much to do against a man for abusing a woman for years, right? TIJ
