U.S. Ski & Snowboard opens investigation into allegations of inappropriate behavior on snowboardcross team

U.S. Ski & Snowboard confirmed Friday that it opened an investigation into allegations of inappropriate behavior within the U.S. snowboardcross team, including some that have been levied against its current head coach.

Callan Chythlook-Sifsof, a member of the 2010 Olympic team, said in a series of Instagram posts that the coach, Peter Foley, has "taken naked photos of female athletes for over a decade" and made an explicit comment to her about another woman's appearance in 2014.

"I cannot watch another Olympic Games without saying this publicly," she wrote in one Instagram post.

U.S. Ski & Snowboard spokesman Tom Horrocks said the organization is “aware of the recent allegations” against Foley.

“We take these very serious and these are being investigated,” Horrocks wrote in an email, adding that the organization would not comment further.

Horrocks did not respond to a question about whether Foley, who has been the coach of the team since 1994, would coach in Saturday’s mixed team competition.

He also did not say who is investigating Chythlook-Sifsof’s statements.
