United States Olympic Committee on Nassar

#BetterLateThanNever

USOC recommends all past USAG Board members resign.

Actually … USOC gives USA Gymnastics board six days to resign or federation will be decertified

The board also must “substantively discuss” at each of its meetings how the federation is progressing in implementing 70 recommendations made by former federal prosecutor Deborah Daniels, whose review of USA Gymnastics found a “complete cultural change” was needed. It must then report its progress to the USOC.

The USA Gymnastics board was quick to accept all of Daniels’ recommendations, but it has been slow to implement them.

Chief Executive Officer
United States Olympic Committee
Scott Blackmun:

To Team USA:

The athlete testimony that just concluded in the Nassar hearings framed the tragedy through the eyes of the victims and survivors, and was worse than our own worst fears. It was powerful because of the strength of the victims, survivors and parents, who so eloquently and forcefully told their stories and so rightfully demanded justice. The USOC should have been there to hear it in person, and I am deeply sorry that did not happen.

The purpose of this message is to tell all of Nassar’s victims and survivors, directly, how incredibly sorry we are. We have said it in other contexts, but we have not been direct enough with you. We are sorry for the pain caused by this terrible man, and sorry that you weren’t afforded a safe opportunity to pursue your sports dreams. The Olympic family is among those that have failed you.

I know this apology is not enough. We have been working on taking steps at the USOC and mandating changes among National Governing Bodies to ensure this does not happen again. Our next steps will be these:

1. We Must Change the Culture of the Sport.

2. We Must Change the Governance Structure of the NGB.

3. We Must Know Who Knew What and When.

4. We Must Support Safe Sport Victims and Survivors.

One thought on “United States Olympic Committee on Nassar”

  1. This is NOT new. The only thing new is that now it’s in the news and everyone knows that the sport of gymnastics is a pedophiles dream hunting grounds. The cesspool these officials, coaches, team Drs, and parents who knew and didn’t care enough to investigate their children’s complaints or behavior indication that something was wrong. That cesspool is now visible to all and the public now sees what young children were forced to live with. The mental & physical abuse that includes brainwashing young girls into thinking that the problem was with them rather then the adults who were abusing them. You are ALL complicit.
