W. German Athlete’s Soles Get Seoul Guard Into Trouble
Police today searched for an Olympic security guard who broke into the bedroom of West German marathon runner Charlotte Teske and disturbed her by playing with her feet.
The incident occurred in the early hours this morning in the West German quarters in the Athletes’ Village.
Teske, 38, who won the 1983 Boston Marathon, told officials she woke up at 4 a.m. when she felt someone playing and fumbling with her feet. She screamed and leaped from bed as the man escaped.
A West German official said, “She leaped into the elevator and took it down to the ground floor as he ran down the stairs. When she reached the ground floor, there was no guard to be seen, but two accreditation cards were lying on the empty desk. She took the one of the man she recognized and handed it in to officials. The man has not been seen since.”
