The Czech speed skater Karolína Erbanová has made the surprise announcement that she has quit the sport at the age of 25. She told journalists she would no longer tolerate the behaviour of national team trainer Petr Novák, whose approach she described as manipulative, humiliating and aggressive.
Erbanová earned a bronze medal in the 500 metres at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang earlier this year. She also took gold at speed skating’s European Sprint Championships in 2017.
