The Japanese Federation, Rikuren, announced on May 17 that it is establishing a new counseling service effective May 20 to help deal with the problems of sexual harassment and physical abuse.  Those in need of assistance and consultation can contact the service through a dedicated telephone hotline or the official website.

Within the track and field world, problems have recently arisen including a national champion-level high school coach who repeatedly employed corporal punishment against team members, and how punishment should be dealt with.
