Wrestlers Allege Misconduct

November 30, 2018

Former Stanford University wrestlers are alleging that a math lecturer stared at them in the shower over a period of years, according to The Mercury News. Stanford has investigated Huang Le, a lecturer who has been affiliated with the team for 25 years, for possible sexual misconduct. Former wrestlers allege that Le ogled them while they showered together.

“I felt pretty exposed and pretty unprotected by the folks who were supposed to be” guarding athletes’ safety, Josh Brown, a former wrestler, said. “Any given day where that happened would be the worst day.”

Le denied the allegations against him, saying it was only a coincidence that he showered with the wrestlers.

“I never had any improper behavior,” Le said.

Le says that none of the wrestlers had ever approached him with such allegations. Some wrestlers, however, said that they had spoken to Le , but he had not changed his behavior.

“We never want to see these kinds of allegations, but if and when they do happen we take them seriously, we investigate them thoroughly and we take appropriate action,” Patrick Dunkley, Deputy Athletic Director, said.

Some of the wrestlers said they spoke out years after graduating because they had since become fathers, and said they did not want their children to have to go through what they did.

“It had no business being this way,” Brown said. “But it is one of my vivid associations of being an athlete at Stanford.”
