(Seoul = News 1) Reporter Young-kwang Moon = Shunyi Feng (35, 彭帥), who climbed to No. 1 in the doubles world rankings on the 2014 Women’s Professional Tennis Tour (WTA) tour, posted on his Weibo on the 2nd, China’s Zhang Ga-ori (張高麗, 75) Posted that he had been sexually assaulted by a former deputy prime minister of the State Council.

Afterwards, Feng’s Weibo account was deleted, and his whereabouts became unclear, raising questions about his personal life. China’s foreign ministry and state media dismissed rumors of Feng’s disappearance, but the US White House and the United Nations have also pressed the White House and the United Nations to provide evidence to confirm his safety.

In the midst of this, the IOC said in a statement on the 21st that Feng Shunyi confirmed safety through a 30-minute video call with IOC Chairman Thomas Bach. Shen Feng is now safely at her home in Beijing and wants her privacy to be respected, the IOC said.

Feng’s safety has been confirmed, but the ball she has launched is heading towards the Beijing Winter Olympics.

Shortly after the US-China summit held on the 16th, the Washington Post reported that US President Joe Biden would soon decide on a ‘diplomatic boycott’ of the Beijing Winter Olympics, citing China’s human rights issues.

British daily The Times reported on the 20th that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is considering a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Olympics.

On the same day, French daily Le Monde published an editorial titled ‘The Beijing Olympics: Inevitable Human Rights Issues’, arguing that “the French government should also consider a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Olympics in response to China’s human rights issues.” .

Some sports organizations are also taking a hard line.

In particular, Steve Simon, chairman of the WTA, to which Feng belongs, said, “If the allegations of sexual assault by Feng are not properly investigated, we will withdraw our business from China even at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars.”

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) also warned that the incident could affect the Beijing Olympics.

As a country that struggles to walk the tightrope between the U.S. and China, we are faced with a difficult choice.

On the 18th, the Blue House re-emphasized that “the Beijing Olympics will become an opportunity for the peace process on the Korean Peninsula”, but said, “It has not been decided whether or not President Moon Jae-in will visit China.” It seems highly likely that the decision on a diplomatic boycott will be postponed by monitoring the situation until the end.

Japan, which is participating in a ‘quad’ that holds China in check along with the United States, Australia and India, is also concerned.

In July, China sent a large-scale team of 777 athletes, led by Director of the National Sports Bureau, Kou Jung-won, to the Tokyo Olympics held in July amid the coronavirus crisis.

However, China is ignoring this atmosphere and is fighting back hard.

In an editorial on the 20th, the Communist Party’s Global Times, the official newspaper of the Communist Party, argued that “the decision that China should make now is to give up the invitation of a high-ranking US representative to the Olympics.” He then counterattacked the United States and said, “The Olympics will be purer without them.”
