By any standards, response by USA Gymnastics to the Nassar scandal has been slow at best. I assume their lawyers are advising foot dragging in hopes of reducing the number of liability suits.
Three of Nassar’s victims ask you to sign a petition:
Jamie Dantzscher – 2000 Olympic Bronze Medalist, Artistic Gymnastic
Jessica Howard – 3 Time National Champion, Rhythmic Gymnastics
Jeanette Antolin – Former USA National Team Member, Artistic Gymnastics
People hoped that the forced resignation of President Steve Penny in March 2017 would make a difference.
Penny got a $1 million severance package from an organization with annual revenue of about $23.7 million (2015).
If USA Gymnastics Chairman Paul Parilla resigns tomorrow, will USAG athletes be safer?
I’m not so sure.
But lacking any other way to pressure a monopoly like USA Gymnastics, I signed.
