Didier Gailhauguet Resigns
French Ice Federation President Resigned May 2004

The controversial president of the French Ice Sports Federation resigned on May 12, 2004. Didier Gailhaguet is most well-known for his role in the 2002 Olympic figure skating judging scandal that resulted in duplicate gold medals being awarded to the Russian and Canadian pairs figure skating teams.


Didier Gailhauguet The French Ice Sports Federation announced on May 12, 2004 that Didier Gailhaguet, president of the French Ice Figure Skating federation, and a central figure in a 2002 Olympic judging scandal, has resigned.

At the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, French judge Marie-Reine Le Gougne accused Gailhaguet of pressuring her to favor Russian pairs skaters Yelena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze over Canadian pair Jamie Sale and David Pelletier, by under-marking the Canadian pair. Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze were originally announced as the first place winners but because of the controversy, gold medals were awarded to both the Russian and Canadian pairs.

Judge Le Gougne later retracted her accusation, but she and President Gailhaguet were suspended for a three year period that would include the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy.

Marc Faujanet, director of the French Ice Sports Federal Council will act as Interim Chief of the French Federation until a new president can be selected.
