Allegations of Sexual Assault Surface Against Canadian Skater Nikolaj Sørensen

Canadian Olympic figure skater Nikolaj Sørensen is being looked into by Canada’s Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner for an alleged sexual assault on an American figure skating coach and former skater in 2012.

The woman, who wasn’t named, said that when she was 22 and Sørensen was 23, he held her down in a bed in a condo near Hartford, Connecticut, and sexually assaulted her.

“He pinned me down with his left arm over my collarbone,” she said. “He pushed down hard on my collarbone, making me gasp for air the moment he inserted his penis into my vagina and covered his right hand over my mouth.”

“All sound at that point became virtually inaudible and it felt like I would suffocate under the pressure of his arm on my collarbone and chest,” she continued. “I pushed my arms against his hips to try to get his penis out of me and I was struggling to breathe. At this point, I feared for my life and let my body go limp as I lay there and he raped me.”

She didn’t report the attack at the time because she was scared she wouldn’t be believed. After getting help, she thought about reporting it to the police in Connecticut but found out it was too late.

She reached out to sports officials on July 22, 2023, after reading an interview where Sørensen talked about keeping women safe in sports.

Skate Canada, which oversees figure skating in Canada, didn’t comment on the report.

The Canadian championship in Calgary is set to take place from Jan. 8-14, where Sørensen is supposed to compete with his ice dancing partner, Laurence Fournier Beaudry. They’re also set to compete in the world championships in Montreal in March.

Sørensen, 34, finished ninth in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and fifth at last year’s world championships. He won silver at the 2023 Four Continents Championships.
