Disgraced former University of Guelph and Speed River Track and Field coach Dave Scott-Thomas has been given a lifetime ban by Athletics Canada.
"Mr. David Scott-Thomas is subject to a lifetime ban from Athletics Canada during which time he shall not coach or train a member of Athletics Canada or a member of any affiliated club or association. This order takes effect immediately,” said Athletics Canada in a statement issued Wednesday.
Scott-Thomas was fired by the University of Guelph for unprofessional conduct following complaints by athletes.
In February, Guelph native Megan Brown, a former top-level cross-country and track athlete at the University of Guelph, went public in a Globe and Mail story, saying she was groomed by Scott-Thomas for a relationship while she was an athlete at the school.
The allegations have not been proven in court.
Scott-Thomas led the University of Guelph to 37 national titles during his time as a coach with the U of G and was also one of the coaches at the 2016 Olympics.
Athletics Canada had been conducting its own investigations into complaints against Scott-Thomas.
The Speed River Track and Field Club, which he founded, has since shut down.
