A limp performance at the Shanghai women's volleyball team against host Tianjin has led to the tip-off of sexual harassment in the visiting team's lock room, Souhu sports reports.

The two teams met Tuesday for the second round of the 2012-2013 Premier League, but visiting Shanghai choked from the very beginning and tumbled through the match to lose 0-3 to host Tianjin.

After the game, someone close to the women players revealed that coaches had sexually assaulted some of the female players days before the match, leading to a deflated spirit hanging over the whole team and, ultimately, the bad performance.

The coaches were said to have excused the harassment as massaging the players' mussels and help them relax. Later, when the players protested to the board of coaches, instead of promising a probe into the incident, the board asked the women to remain silent and asked for a written confession from the accused coaches, who kept their jobs and continued training the women until the day of the match.

The Shanghai sports administration replied on Wednesday that they are paying close attention to the incident and that a thorough investigation is under way into the accounts on Sina Weibo, China's most active and influential micro-blogging platform.

Once confirmed, those responsible will be severely penalized, the administration added.
