Ice dancer Sorensen exits Canadian championship amid sexual assault allegations

USA Today reported last week that Canada’s Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner is investigating Sorensen over an alleged 2012 sexual assault of an American figure skating coach and former skater in Hartford, Connecticut.
