LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -

A former Olympian is making his way to Lake Placid to face child molestation charges.

Genrich Sretenski competed as an ice dancer in the 1988 Olympics for the Soviet Union. Prosecutors say over a year ago Sretenski accompanied a girl he was training to the Ice Dancing Championships in Lake Placid where he allegedly kissed and molested her. He also allegedly sent her hundreds of text messages professing his love.

Sretenski was arrested in his home state of Maryland and has 72 hours to turn himself in to New York authorities.
